This means I'm now running CentOS 6 on my desktop ("So soon!?" shut up). It also means I have to fix all the little annoying things about CentOS 6. One of which is that modern kernels us a framebuffer, which switches the console to illegibly small text. The solution is to put video=640x480 or video=800x600 on your kernel command line. Ideally in grub.conf.
