I recently installed RHEL 5 (fully-virtual though) using the 6-CD's with the HTTP install method.

I used the Xen hosts' httpd instance, created a rhel5 directory in /var/www/html (default HTTP root location).  Inside the rhel5, I made 6 directories named disc1, disc2, etc... to use as mount points.  Open a web browser and make sure you can open the location first.  I booted up the VM with the first disc ISO.  At the boot: menu, type "linux askmethod" and it'll ask in the text-mode area of the installer what method you want to install using.  Select HTTP and tell it the hostname and directory of where the discs can be found.  The system should boot into anaconda and finish fine.

Good luck
