it doesn't ask about any network parameters?

That shouldn't be from domU. Like your domU error said, it's looking
for stage2.img. Is there anything about stage2.img on your
access/error log? If not, then it's still basic networking issue.

Here's some things you could do:
- make sure dom0's firewall (if any) allows domU to connect
- make sure you got domU with a GUI. using "virt-manager" might be
easier, as it allows you to easily see resource allocation (including
- when installing domU, use shortcut to switch to another session on
domU (Alt-F2 or possibly Ctrl-Alt-F2.). From that text session you can
issue commands like ping and ifconfig to verify that domU can connect
to dom0 IP address.
