You probably need special driver modules to load a SCSI or SATA module for that system, which most likely isn't included in the default CentOS kernel. Check your hardware and download the linux kernel modules for it, which you need to apply via floppy whenstarting the installation, or try installing the OS to a standard IDE Harddisk.
