I just joined this mailing list a couple of minutes ago. I'll start to
use CentOS for academic purposes. We'll try to build a cluster
based in machines with this OS.

First of all, I'd like to beg you for patience, because I'm comple-
tly new in Linux.

My first question is: every tutorial on installation talks about
inserting an installation CD, but I'm not sure about what do it
means... I've downloaded the four files .iso availabe in CentOS.org,
but I don't know what to do with them. Should I burn this files
into de CD the way they are? Should I unzip them before this?

Details: I'm using Windows, trying to install CentOS 4 in a 32
bit's PC. I've downloaded CentOS-4.5-i386-bin.......iso.

Thank you for any help!
