Hi Mike,

Hi list,

New to xen, eager to try it out.

Welcome :)

 From what I can see, a distro needs to be xen aware or needs to be compatible in various ways in order to be used as a guest, right?

This is true from paravirtualized (PV) guests. But if you have the right hardware support (VT-x or AMD-V) you can run unmodified guests

I decided to give it a try using a qmail distro.

I don't know much about this one, so I won't be
of help right away. Is it Linux based?

I copied a distro to a location on the xen host.
I went through the new virtual server configuration.
The default install path is; /var/lib/xen/images/mynewinstall.img
When I try to install, I keep getting; Invalid install location

Sounds like you are using virt-manager, maybe on Fedora?
you should take a look here:

I am also a co-author on a book called Running Xen, so I will recommed it,
but if you are not interested, you still might find the references on
our book website (runningxen.com) useful.

Give us some more information (your distro, Xen version, goals)
and  we can give some more tips and pointers.
