Hi Joseph,

The CentOS AMIs are not available for download from the StarCluster
website so you will need to spin up a single instance of the CentOS AMI,
login, dump the root disk to an image file, and download the image file:

$ starcluster start -s 1 -i cc1.4xlarge -n ami-06a75a6f downloadme
$ starcluster sshmaster downloadme
root_at_master $ cat /dev/xvda > /mnt/centos-ami-06a75a6f.img
root_at_master $ exit
$ starcluster get downloadme /mnt/centos-ami-06a75a6f.img $HOME/downloads

BTW there's no need to download both CentOS AMIs - they're identical
except ami-06a75a6f has Hadoop installed.

If you'd rather skip all of this you can download the Ubuntu 10.04 AMIs
instead from the StarCluster web site:
