Alright, just relaying my findings when I was having problems here. I
ended up having to mount the CD images on a blank ext3 partition and
putting that in the domU config file.

Thanks for clearing up the two slashes, I have noticed them working
before but didn't know if the CentOS installer was getting confused with
them or not.

Could this be a network issue? 

OP: Is your domU config'd for networking properly?
