this has worked for me, using a Windows machine to prep the USB stick

and this tool was even easier to use, you can setup the USB stick on 
either a windows or linux box.

I nearly always use the CentOS 6 MINIMAL install, its hardly bigger than 
the NETINSTALL, and less hassle to setup.  once its up and running, I 
yum install anything else I need.   I prefer minimal installs to very 
comprehensive ones, yum updates are much faster when you aren't updating 
tons of packages you'll never use.
