Hi submarenuhon welcome to BC.



hope you can share the step-by-step on what to do with it

We will gladly help you if we can.


First why cent os? Wouldn’t you prefer something more novice friendly?


Before we go any further, Can you please tell us about your PC?

Things like.


PC type, Desktop or Laptop.

Processor type.

How much ram is in it.

How big is the hard drive.

Do you have a GPU ( Grafix card ) What type.


Once we know this we can better assist you with a Linux distro that will suit you and your PC.

Which CentOS download are you looking at as 1 is 4+GB  and another is 7+GB ...and they have a minimal which would fit on a CD but probably has nothing much on it.. so bear that in mind if you have a slow or a bit sketchy internet connection.


As NickAU inquired  why CentOS as it is really meant as a Server..and if you don't plan on using it as such has a lot of things you will never use ....though it is quite a good Distro...


Fedora is the desktop type OS made by the same people as Cent OS ...but may not be the most easy to get to grips with specially if you need propriety type drivers etc..
