Under Xen I am booting a virtual server from a recovery CD-Rom
(actually a iso image)
When the cd boots in the console window I have to
send the single key "F12" to the window within 10 seconds
from start, otherwise it will try to boot from harddisk.
Pressing F12 in the console window does not work - and I tried sdl as
well as vnc.
I can send various Ctrl+Alt-combinations using the menu item "Send key"
but not Fn keys.
Does anyone know how to send F12 or other function keys to a booting
...torkil... on centos 5.3, xen-3.0.3 and virt-manager 0.5.3.
