I am new to virtualisation and am a bit lost.

I have a shinny new server that must run CentOS 5.5. I need to create
a VM of an Ubuntu sever to run as the main guest. I wanted to use
paravirtualisation as I read it's can perform better. The bit that I
am getting stuck on is forcing the virt-install to use
paravirtualisation and the installation distribution location. I have
a iso image mounted and shared via http. I can browse the installation
tree. It looks the same as the one here:

but I always get the error that the installation distribution is

Can anyone help understand what the installation requires please?
