It seems to me it would be easier to just uninstall their control panel and install yours.
You'd probably have to uninstall and reinstall the web server, possibly MySQL, etc. as well. Control panels have their hooks into these pretty deeply.
Assuming everything was installed using yum or at least rpm, this should be easy to accomplish.
I'm surprised they don't have a "bare" non-control-panel image available, though. They just had to take an image before installing the control panel.

this looks like it probably goes beyond me, I'm used to using windows machines and haven't configured or installed in this way before. It would be faster if i hired someone. I have access to the remote console where I can upload to virtual CD and floppy and have full root access.
Can anyone offer or recommend someone who can 'network install' linux centos 5?

Why not hire your host? They are best positioned to do this. They are intimately familiar with their remote image-install system, their control panel, etc. So, they are in a position to decided whether it would be best to build a new image from scratch or un-install the control panel and any other software tainted by it.

I've thought about that but they charge £60 (~$120) per 30 mins and they say there backed up for a few days, I have posted the job on a well known freelancer site to see if I can get someone sooner.

Just a +1 on jtara's original post. I think you'll find it faster and easier to figure out the systems package manager/installer and use it to uninstall/reinstall whatever individual packages you want. Better and easier than doing a complete reinstall - which can lead to some problems. Problems, BTW not easily corrected over the web.
