Might be worth posting on the anaconda-devel list.... or filing a bug
with CentOS.

Or... does the same thing happen if you try with a RHEL5 install?  If
so, you could definitely open a bug report with them to get it looked

Would be interesting though to see if your machine is locked up.  Try
jumping over to the shell console (ALT-F2) and see if you can still
interact, get a process list etc.  Run dmesg, and look at the other
consoles' outputs to see if anything can give you some info on where
exactly it's hanging.
