OK, not a problem.

I did look at the grub.conf that was generated and things are a little
different from what I expected (I selected 'Virtualization' during the
install process):

title CentOS (2.6.18-164.el5xen)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-164.el5 
        module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.el5xen ro root=LABEL=/c5 irqpoll
        module /initrd-2.6.18-164.el5xen.img

The grub 'module' option is new to me and I am unsure how this maps to
lilo (the lilo docs don't talk about multi-boot, which I guess is what
is going on here, at least from reading the grub docs).
