Ah many thanks. I read about the minimal install and thought that's what i 
could use - thought better of it and chose the liveCD. I wasn't sure about the 
netinstall... but i've found since receiving your email a "how-to" and it seems 
quite clear.

Seems Centos has changed quite a bit from what i remember. There wasn't a 
liveCD and i installed from 6 CDs... which was a lot of downloading (easier to 
buy the DVD really).
