RE: issue of booting USB w/o BIOS support, please see http://mirror.slitaz.org/floppies/ You'd need an HD floppy disk for this.
16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC) quoting 16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC)~ Floppy image set
This floppy set will boot a Slitaz stable version. You can write floppies with SliTaz bootfloppybox, Windows rawrite or simply dd:
- dd if=fd001.img of=/dev/fd0
If you have a CD-ROM, an USB port and an USB key or a network card, but you can't boot these devices directly, then try floppy-grub4dos  first. This 1.44Mb floppy provides tiny programs to boot these devices without BIOS support and some other tools. 16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC)16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC)16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC)16:59, 15 April 2013 (UTC)

Recent releases of Centos simply point to Red Hat for documentation - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/
RHEL 6 system setup - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Deployment_Guide/index.html - probably most useful for reference & details as necessary (not "memorize the whole thing" reading!)
Likewise, the RHEL 6 "installation guide" - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Installation_Guide/index.html - is useful when installing on one's own hardware - but is not entirely relevant when setting up on a VPS!
The RHEL 6 "security guide" - https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html-single/Security_Guide/index.html
(a large part of the Linode documentation is specific to their VPS deployment system - https://library.linode.com/getting-started is a useful entry point if curious about how their system works).

"the "erased state" for flash is when it is filled with all 1's."
