There is no CentOS 9 and never will be. CentOS Stream exists and shares the CentOS 8 section.
CentOS 8 died a premature death at the end of 2021 - migrate to Rocky/Alma/OEL/Springdale ASAP.
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 and 6 are dead, do not use them.

CentOS Linux 8 differs from CentOS Linux 7. Separate subforums for these make sense.

CentOS Linux 8 and CentOS Stream 8 share a lot. Their co-existence on same subforum is/was short.

CentOS Stream 9 differs from CentOS Stream 8. Whether separate subforum is necessary due to that difference and whether that forum should be here ... I could quote Rhett Butler on that one.

Did you read your signature? It is called CentOS Stream 9 it is the precursor to RHEL 9. We are not all running Rocky/Alma, the reason RPM fusion does not work is because I am on CentOS Stream 9. CentOS 8 is not CentOS Stream 9 and never will be.

The Stream guys seem to have decided to use a Fedora server for this that runs something completely different. As far as I know, they do not want a Stream 9 section here as they want it all to go to the new thing, whatever that is. From that point of view, I suspect you can assume that these forums have a limited lifespan and will disappear once CentOS 7 goes EOL in 2024. I believe that we did a quick survey of the current forum moderators and none of us were interested in continuing once CentOS 7 goes EOL.
