I did not get past this yet. I ended up doing a manual yum install with yum:

yum -c yum-xen.conf --installroot=/mnt -y groupinstall Base

Though perhaps next time I'll use a qemu install using the ISO DVD.

Hi Paul,

That's a good idea. I'm only somewhat familiar with this method - I understand that you are mounting the Guest filesystem to /mnt then using yum to install packages onto it. Do you have a good 'howto' you can recommend that describes this procedure. Also, could you cat your yum-xen.conf file for me? I'm not sure what you mean by a 'qemu install' - can you elaborate on that?
