Where, o, where did you get that iso?

I've never seen one that forces you to install virtualization - that's
an optional package that is always off unless you specifically select
it in the package options (or just off, if you don't customize right
away).

I'd go back and get another, or download directly from the centos.org
mirror sites.

BTW, I install with both the x86_64 DVD iso and the i386 DVD iso -
depends on the target machine.
