Unable to read group repo data-Xen

I have copied the RHEL5 cd's into a folder (/rhelsource) and have created a local repository with it. Yum works fine with localinstall.

I had tried to implement paravirt on another system running RHEL5 using NFS. I wanted to use my local repo, so i gave the path as nfs: . The installation of the virtual linux machine works fine until it reaches the root password stage, where i get the error "Unable to read group repository data. This could be a problem with your data tree" and reboots. I am unable to get the package options in the window, and clicking next just continues the installation.

I am able to install and run the virtual machine, though GUI is unavailable. startx throws an error "x respawning too fast: shutting down for 5 mins".

Can anyoune tell me what's going on? What is the right way to do this?
