CentOS – Which Install Should I Use?

When installing CentOS for the first time, you are faced with the challenging question of what you’d like to install. Unless you know what exactly comes with each of the choices, you’re not going to be able to make an well-informed decision.

As a personal, general rule, I usually install using the “Minimal” selection. As I’m setting up my new server, I can install exactly what I want and I’ll know exactly what’s installed on it when I’m finished.
