I suggest using file: instead of tap:aio (I haven't tested this, but it's 
been said here or elsewhere several times that it is faster than tap:aio)  
I've been using it all the time with good results.)

I saw the same when I created a Xen VM for CentOS 4.6. It freezes because 
there's no tty for the console. I'm not sure if this might be the same. The 
solution for the tty problem is explained here: 

Btw: *why* do you want to use a jailtime image if you can just 
install/kickstart a CentOS 5 VM in no time?
