Well, it is putting an extra slash in front of the server address.. I
remember this being a pain when trying to set a mirror to install up.


Try the following:

Web site name:  ftp.funet.fi
CentOS directory: pub/mirrors/centos.org/5.3/os/i386/


Make sure you DO NOT add a slash infront of "pub" in the CentOS
directory line.

This tends to work for me, how are you kicking off the xen guest
install? Grabbed the xen kernel and ramdisk from a mirror?
