A) install CentOS 5 minimal or base, configure as needed. update to
current patches with...
yum -y update
B) use yum install XXXX to install any other tools you need as you go.
I almost always install...
yum -y install sysstat ; server IO performance tools like
yum -y group-install "Development Tools" ; if you need to compile
anything w/ gcc etc
yum -y erase gcc-java ; horrible gcj should
be burned but its dragged in with development-tools
but your mileage may vary.
C) edit /etc/inittab and insure the first non-comment line reads...
(the '3' is the boot init level)
