In the suse, rhel, and xen enterprise gui clients, there is usually some
way to install your os from CD/DVD, ftp root, or iso.

More pointed question: how ought *I* provision a vm from ISO?

I use qemu;  it works quite nicely.

# qemu -hda /home/lsc/centos3 -cdrom /home/lsc/CentOS-3.8-server-i386.iso -boot d -vnc 2

this assumes I want the hard drive to be the file at /home/lsc/centos3; you can use a partition or another file if you like.

(I then connect to vnc screen 2 on that host from my workstation and finish the install.)

also note that you still need to put the kernel in the Dom0 in it's xm config file in the usual way; the xen kernel, not the kernel from the CDrom.
