Looks like my problem was with the downloads. I would download a file 3 
different times and get 3 different checksums :( Now I finally got one 
that matches the checksums listed on the download site, and it appears 
to be happily installing now.

Thank you all

This also gives you a quick way to test if the hardware you are installing to is compatible with the version of Centos that you're installing since the Live CD boots and comes up with a working desktop or it does not.
