VDI broker

Trying out free VDI broker

CentOS 6 eth0

Before you install new CentOS please review FAQ and do not forget:

"at install time where, after the installer asks for your language and keyboard and Basic or other storage devices, it runs "Examining Devices" then it presents a screen "Please name this computer..." On this screen is a button labeled "Configure Networking". Clicking that button will launch NetworkManager. Select the Ethernet connection which is probably listed as "System eth0" and edit the settings. If you select the check box by "Connect Automatically" networking will start on boot in the future."

Otherwise there will be no network unless you disable Netowkr Manager in the config...
