Someone posted that you can use VNC to install CentOS 6.
"Anaconda therefore includes a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) mode that
allows the graphical mode of the installer to run locally, but display
on a system connected to the network. Installing in VNC mode provides
you with the full range of installation options, even in situations
where the system lacks a display or input devices."
