Sorry for the late post on this thread, but there's free client called 
'Jalbum' [1] that may well do the trick for you.  Many skins, some 
simple, some not..an integrated ftp client for uploading to your web 
server, and nothing else but your photos needed.  There's also a 
pre-built rpm which I've used without issue on CentOS 4.7 and higher 
(client machines).  I'm hosting more than a few of these albums on my 
CentOS 5.3 server.

Dependencies: JVM

I do hope this helps...the folks at Jalbum are really responsive to 
enhancement requests too...
