I've been pretty successful with CentOS, but to be honest, I usually
install the dependencies for the ruby/rails/apache/mongrel stack from
source on all my boxen, just so I know what I'm getting into.

My current deployment scripts live here:



will install ruby, rails, apache2.2.2, mongrel and a few other gems to
get you upto speed.  It then sets you up nice to use a cap recipe file
like the one in that repository as well to run multiple mongrel
clusters on the same box.

patches/suggestions/improvements/tests welcome....
