 Amen !   I have used centosplus and found it to be a very
 valuable companion resource for centos.

 On debian the equivalent is

 aptitude install php5-common php5-cli php5-dev php5-mysql

 one difference I found between using yum on centos &
 aptitude on debian, and I am not sure if it is universally the case,
 is that the packages hit the ground running with debian.

 Eg. I run
            aptitude install ntp
  and the system clock syncs in a few secs, I run
            aptitude install mysql-server mysql-client
  and mysql server is running.

 whatever happened to the need to dig around in obscure
 directories looking in obscure .conf files, after installing
 a package, trying to decide if you can have space between
 the option  "-p" & the value :-)
