Just for the record ... and to answer this question for the list and
futiure searches:

CentOS has an Official CD/DVD vendor program.  These Vendors donate part
of their monies for each sale back to the CentOS project, and they
provide quality ISOs:


I would recommend one of those vendors ... Lance already did recommend
one (cheeplinux) for the particular location in this question, but for
anyone else anywhere else ... use authorized vendors to get quality CD /
DVDs and to support the CentOS Project.

(BTW ... our CD/DVD vendor program is accessible from the main
CentOS.org website, using "Downloads -> Where to Buy CDs or DVDs" ...)
If you are a CD / DVD vendor and want to join the program, please see
this guide:
