The PCI 'standard' followed by Visa [which formerly had its 
CISP standard versions] and MasterCard [similar but less 
onerous] and the other card issuers are fairly elaborate as to 
the level of security one has to observe to be compliant;  It 
is perfectly doable with CentOS, and one can 'pass' an 
'assessment' and get a Qualified Accesser to sign off on a 
CentOS based install; unlike the Wild West early days, 
however, it is not at all trivial to attain;  your upstream 
processor will have a recommendation on what to use.

I would start by asking there.  Doing otherwise is probably a 
'premature optiization'.  ;)
