I created an image from the first CD and tried to install from it as I 
needed that for qemu, anyway. That fails as well, though. The error is
"Unable to complete install 'libvirt.libvirtError virDomainCreateLinux() 
failed POST operation failed. (xend.err 'Error creating domain: long() 
argument must be a string or a number')"
and some more Python traceback stuff.
