Hi and welcome to LQ.

Make sure you make some space for CentOS (a minimum of 1 separate partition) and then boot the computer from the Centos dvd.

What is your drives/partitions layout?

thank you but i done the installation. but i have another problem. i have just installed xen hypervisor and i want to install two guest operting systems with domU via local media (CD/DVD) but i can't. i don't know how to create domU. And also when i try to create ones in dom0 the options to install via CD/DVD is not available in other words you can not select it. and another thing i have a lot of space for the contos 5.7 my hard disck is 238 GB and my processor is intel i3 3.2 Ghz and the RAM is 4GB , now i don't have problems with the resources of hardware
