Sounds like you're committed now. The time to ask was before; now your 
best guage is experience. If you haven't installed yet, test with a live 
distro (is there a CentOS Live? I think there is). Knoppix is good, any 
of the ubuntu versions & releases comes as a pair of images/CDs, one is 
an installable live system, the other the more tradidional text-mode 
install cd.

It's good to stay here for sanity checking/debating the point and for 
those who might find it in the archive. It's annoying to google a 
problem, find the question and no answer.
