Use google to find a utility called dd for your current operating system. It's included as part of pretty much any Linux distro and I suspect probably exists on Mac too. Google can find it for Windows. Use dd to copy the iso file exactly as it is to the usb stick - just make sure you're pointing to the usb stick and not something else you care about as it will overwrite the entire contents of the target. Once complete, boot from it.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!
