You might want to check that.  IIRC, every time I have actually
installed CentOS from the DVD/CD, it goes into the pseudo-graphical
text mode for disk test, language and keyboard, and /then/ it starts
up the X server to do the rest.

That's how I remember it worked when I installed 4.4 and then 5.0 on
my home desktop, 5.1 on my laptop (and once on my aux desktop at home)
and 5.2 here at work....
