Hi Xen Users,

I am using virt-install for HVM domain instllation. Form DVD it is fine, but how I can use virt-install with cds. How i can give all CDs location to virt-install.

#virt-install --debug --name=el5 --ram=400 --vcpus=8 -c /tmp/el5-dvd.iso --file=/tmp/el5 -s 10 --vnc --hvm 2>&1 | tee virt.log

Anybody have idea. would be a great help.

Make a DVD.iso. Would you like me to publish my script to do so? It's a rebuild of hte old one CentOS uses, but rebuilt to actually work with RHEL 5, which has this nutty freaking split-up of the RPM's into different directories and some real oddness in the comps*.xml files to group the software as part of their software subscription structures.

Frankly, I'm not thrilled with RHEL 5 and consider the cost of fealing with the licensing to be more than the benefit of having direct vendor support at installation time, since I'm generally far more skilled and experienced than the flower few tiers of their tech support and mail *them* the patches to make things work.
