Net Install CentOS

Cent OS “net install” Tutorial / HowTo


CentOS in Vmware

So, I was trying to install CentOS 5.3 in Vmware and once it will execute the setup process and after a few clicks I was presented with the Disk Partitioning Page, clicking “Next” would reveal an error that

No Drives Found An error has occurred – no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem

Selecting and IDE Disk resolved the issue as when we create a VM in Vmware with default settings it uses SCSI.

In future always select “custom” when creating a new vm and select IDE instead of SCSI as your Hard Disk type.

CentOS : Installing Firefox 3.5.2

Source : WilliamNix Blog @ Blogspot

cd /tmp
wget ""
tar xvjf firefox-*.bz2
sudo cp -r firefox /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.2
sudo mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox.old
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/firefox-3.5.2/firefox /usr/bin/firefox-3.5.2
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/firefox-3.5.2 /usr/bin/firefox

Close Firefox and then reopen

If for whatever reason you’d like to switch back to your previous version of Firefox, simply run the following commands from Terminal:

sudo mv /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox.bak
sudo mv /usr/bin/firefox.old /usr/bin/firefox
