Just want to say thanks for the responses, guys. This will help and
makes me feel a bit more comfortable about how I'm starting out.

everything you want done, can be and will easily be done on 1 machine, i
would recommend you do a minimum install, then use yum to install
packages are you need to - you dont need everything up front as you
start coding / using the machine. Install as you go along - it will give
you a better understanding of what packages are available and what
depends on what.

Enjoy Linux!
