That sounds like the bug mentioned at the bottom of the CentOS How-to:
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=568343 (around comment 5)

I recently did a network install initiated from a USB stick, but not
an install from the stick (I didn't have a Linux machine handy and the
64-bit CentOS 6.2 ISO won't fit on a FAT file system).  It is worth
noting that the upstream vendor suggests using dd to create the USB
media:

One would assume that might work if you just needed DVD 1 of CentOS.
