Linux in Minutes

This is somewhat interactive video towards establishing a VoIP application server. In this video we'll see the very basic Linux installation. This is CentOS which is most popular for deploying Asterisk Open Source VoIP Servers.I've used Oracle Virtual machine, another free software to create this virtual machine. CentOS 5.5 is also available free of cost. At the end of this tutorial our CentOS machine will be ready to communicate over LAN/WAN.

A brief summary of the commands or files I've used.
