Hi Karanbir,

the anaconda package from CentOS 5 can't support installation from a 
Live CD.
This feature has been introduced in Fedora 7. If we want to stick as 
much as possible
to the original CentOS packages on the Live CD, installation from the 
media won't be
supported through anaconda until CentOS 6.
