Is here the right file and right place adding the above line
???

   Starting httpd.vmware:                                              done
Now it works.

satimis@ubuntu:~$ /usr/bin/vmware-server-console
starts vmware-server-console

Repeat following steps
Code:
Open a Virtural Machine -> Location -> Browse - CentOS-5_lamp.x86_64.vmx -> Power on the Virtural Machine -> highlight "CentOS-5lamp/x86_64 /home/satimis/CentOS_lamp.x86_64.... -> OK ->  Edit Virtual Machine Settings ->
Memory - 512MB (I have 2G RAM onboard.  Only keep the default setting=512MB) 
Processor - select "Two"
-> Power On this virtual machine
CentOS 5 starts to boot finally ending at
localhost login : root
password
[root@localhost]#


What shall be the next?

What are the function of these 2 kernels

Cent 2.6.18 ........el5vm
Cent 2.6.18 ........el5

???


IIRC I came across a Howtoforge tutorial re setup LAMP on CentOS 5 before. Any advice? TIA


Edit:

Finally I found following documents

1)
The Perfect Setup - CentOS 5.0 (32-bit)
http://howtoforge.org/perfect_setup_centos5.0

I'm running 64bit CentOS 5. I do hope that the document also works on 64bit.


2)
Installing Lighttpd With PHP5 And MySQL Support On CentOS 5.0
http://howtoforge.org/taxonomy/term/57


I think 1) above will be more suitable for me. Advice would be appreciated. TIA
