You need to install from a mirror (even if just a localhost mirror).
Installing from CDROM is most
likely not possible with PV guests on your version of Xen.

Some more information on it here: (you can also find a lot more
examples of the the localhost
example by searching the xen mailing list archives, check
xen.markmail.org and also the
centos-virt and fedora-xen list archives)
