    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I wish to etup an dedicated mysql box. I have come across an old netfinity 5000 (yea old i know) and i wish to use it as a local mysql server to take the load off my game server.

    1st problem... i am using Centos 5.2, When i try to install Mysql and openssh only i find the whole os bloated with a whole bunch of unneeded garbage that just uses resources.

    Is there a way to install an linux distro (any) that can handle running with just Mysql and openssh (management)

    During the CentOS installation, you can customize the package selection. Just select MySQL and unselect everything else. That won't give you a minimal system, but leave out most of the unneeded stuff.
    You can do the same with Debian and Ubuntu during the installation - just select OpenSSH server, and after the installation you can install MySQL with apt.

    Thanks for the reply...

    I have tried that with no luck. it still seems to install a whole bunch of unneeded stuff.
