The current CentOS LiveCD doesn't support installation from the live
media. This feature requires a newer version of the anaconda package
than the one provided by the CentOS 5 official tree (liveinst binary).
Since CentOS is supporting its packages for 7 years, introducing a new
version of a critial package such as anaconda and providing support for
it would be unrealistic.

Maybe this feature could be added to the 'unsupported' branch of the
CentOS LiveCD project.
