Hello list,

I want to virtualize my physical CentOS 4.5 yet. Therefor I download the
CentOS 4.5 iso. After mounting the iso on my notebook and make the mounted
iso available via nfs I start on my CentOS 5 xen machine following command:

virt-install -n myServer --ram=512 -f /virt/myServer.disk -s 150
--nographics -p --location=nfs:nbk:/media/centos

This works for CentOS 5 DomUs but CentOS 4.5 brings following error:

tail -n20 /var/log/xen/xend.log:

Any suggestions? Thanks.
