Looking for a guide on how to setup MySql with high availability on a Centos Linux Environment
Redundancy, or a cluster environment.

google "mysql ndb cluster howto"  and pick one that best suits you.  Be prepared for a steep learning curve though.  Try it out then post more specific questions later when you encounter difficulties.

You might also want to try master-slave replication first.  It's much simpler, though there is still a slight downtime in case the master fails as you have to point your apps to the slave.  Google "mysql replication howto" for that.

I really only used the official mysql documentation i.e. http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-cluster-installation.html and http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/replication.html but I wasn't a newbie when I started dealing with this.  I imagine there are more beginner-friendly pages out there.  So sorry, I cannot recommend anything more specific.
