comment why do I need the “sudo” in this particular command?
Those packages installs to directories like /usr/bin which are writeable only by root. The programs in the packages make assumptions about the location of files, you cannot just install those packages in, say, your home directory. Can't you just compile the packages on a machine on which you've the compiler tools available, and move them to this machine on which you do not have root permissions?

comment Should I set my BIOS to local time or UTC?
The Alternate CD asks me whether the clock is set to UTC or not. I don't believe this is the case for the Desktop CD.

I'll set it to UTC since the default is UTC=true (checked it in the initscripts package). Thanks!

comment How to uninstall Nginx (installed from source) on CentOS?
@Vinay: JourneymanGeek suggested checkinstall. Another way to check which files would be created by make install is by printing the commands that would be run: make --dry-run install

@Jusfeel: you need to run make uninstall from the directory in which you compiled nginx.
