I tried your suggestion tonight of using xen-tools. First, I looked under /usr/lib/xen-tools and saw two CentOS related directories: centos-4.d and centos-5.d.

So I assumed that when creating the DomU using xen-tools, I would use the parameter:

However, the installation failed. Below is the sanitized result of the log file.

The system is missing the common file: /bin/ls

I get a similar error when trying a CentOS 4 DomU as well.
