@Palad1n I spent DAYS trying to get an official rpm kernel working on ovh boxes... and didn't find a way... generated thousands of initrd... none worked...
(I DO NOT WANT a custom, self compiled kernel, I want the ENTERPRISE LINUX official kernel.)
additionally: the ovh netboot kernel do not boot a clean centos image... something might be broken somewhere

I am using CentOS v5.2 64bit from OVH Install.
Installed Cpanel/WHM onto it without a problem.
Only the Kernel is modified to support their hardware drivers.
But the Kernel is easy to replace if you use their template for building the Kernel (drivers etc.) then add your own options.

Hi,
I've just got a box and I've to manually install CentOS 5.2 as OVH provides a highly modified CentOS version (which won't boot at all with CentOS or other RHEL based kernel).

My question is:
Are you all using OVH Centos 5 or have you installed a Real CentOS using PXE?
