Hi Denis,

I am trying to install from a local webserver where I have an iso loop back 
mounted. I have tested that I can connect and pull files from this using wget. 
I am trying to install CentOS5.5 64bit and have used templates for RH 5, CentOS 
5 and Other Media without success. Here is how I am trying to do it:

 uuid=$(xe vm-install template='Other install media' new-name-label='CO5')  
----Doesn't seem to matter which template I use.

netuuid=$(xe network-list bridge=xenbr0 --minimal)

xe vif-create vm-uuid=$uuid network-uuid=$netuuid mac=random device=0 

xe vm-param-set uuid=$uuid other-config-install-repository=cdrom,http

xe vm-start uuid=$uuid

This works to start the VM but it never looks to the http repo that I have on 
the local network. In VNC it says that it cannot find the CD or HD for the 
install. How do I get it to look to my webserver to install from the loop back 
mounted iso?

Thanks for the help,
