problem while installing centos through usb

I am trying to install centos with a USB stick.

1. I downloaded centos iso.
2. Installed it on USB using unetbootin
3. Now when I boot my desktop through USB, it starts centos.

After a few installation step, it asks me to "select the file which is your driver disk image ". I browsed through my USB but can not figure out which file is it looking for.

Can someone guide me?

The kernel image file will be located in a directory on your installation media and will carry a name which starts with either "linux" or "vmlinuz". If you point the system to that file, your installation should continue normally.
