    Well I think you will have to download them all? Or download the DVD from a Torrent?

    But if you just want a web server why not just install Centos 4?

    Thats why i did a week ago?

    I just download the DVD image from Kent or get the VM image from jailtime.org.

    Start with disk 1 and just install the base system, then add Apache from the package manager. Then you only have to cut 1 CD :-)

    I don't know how many CentOS people are around here though if you get stuck, Ubuntu or Debian might be wiser unless you have particular reason to use CentOS.

    I'm versed with CentOS so you can rely on me if you want; that said, have a nose at this tutorial which although uses the DVD image it's a good one to work with.

    Alternatively, consider Debian or Ubuntu as a lot more folks are more clued up on that on here certainly from experience.

    To be fair, I used to use CentOS quite a lot, but it was a while ago.

    Yeah; I "upgraded" to Gentoo for most needs but debian for "simpler" set ups to just work.

    One thing that annoyed me with CentOS was their lack of a single-CD server ISO, like Ubuntu has.

    That was one of the reasons I switched. Personally I think Ubuntu is better because it: has a single server CD, has a better package management system with better repositories, is faster (in my tests).

    Another CentOS user here, more than willing to try and help I agree with powdarrmonkey, I usually do a minimum install with disk 1 and install whatever I need afterwards with the package manager.

    I'm not sure whether you mean the actual whole OS feels quicker or whether the repos do, if the latter I always liked how apt-get was quicker than yum (easier to get the name of a pkg wrong and not wait 3 days for yum to inform you, even with -C).
