Running a 64-bit guest OS in vmware or virtualbox requires the host CPU to have hardware virtualization support. Some Xeons do, some don't. Intel does not include this support in all their processors. Even if your processor does support it, you might have to explicitly enable it in the host computers BIOS.
Thanks for that Adam, I'll have to check!

Play Bonny!

Well I am guessing this won't help the virtualbox scenario all that much, but I burnt the ISO and dropped the CD into a brand new HP8530 and all it does is error as follows:

Memory for crash kernel (0x0 to 0x0) notwithin permissible range
ata_piix: 0000:00:1f.2: no available legacy port
hdc: ide_intr: huh? expected NULL handler on exit
hdc: ide_intr: huh? expected NULL handler on exit
Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 355710
--------------------------------------------------
WARNING: Cannot find root filesystem!
--------------------------------------------------

After dropping to a prompt it then continually repeats the lines starting with hdc and Buffer

I have booted liveCD for Ubuntu and install cd for Slackware on this machine without issue and it is currently running Windows XP

So I guess my question would also be, Should CentOS really be this difficult to use / install?

Strange as it seems, same CD in an old IBM R61 seems to work fine ... go figure.
