From:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Installation Guide
28.9. Making the Installation Tree Available

The kickstart installation must access an installation tree. An
installation tree is a copy of the binary Red Hat Enterprise Linux CD-ROMs
with the same directory structure.

So:
# cd /path/to/vm/os/install_tree
# cp -pr /media/CentOS_5.2_Final ./

Thereafter the Install Media URL becomes:
/path/to/vm/os/install_tree/CentOS_5.2_Final
