If you run chroot without the third item (the command), it will use
whatever value is in $SHELL
       If no command is given, run '${SHELL} -i' (default: '/bin/sh -i').

`echo ${SHELL}` to find out what that might be.

You might check the shell variable and also see if you can chroot without
specifying a command as you have been doing.

I've chrooted a few cloned installs in the past week, but I didn't use the
CentOS media.
I have a copy of SystemRescueCD (default shell is zsh) on my PXE server and
go at it that way.
