Hi All,

[I originally posted this message in the main CentOS users' list, but
later found this list.  So, I'm reposting it here since this is where it

I'm trying to install a Fedora 8 domU on a CentOS 5 dom0, but the
following command fails:

[root at xenmaster ~]# virt-install -p -n krs -r 512 -m 00:16:3E:66:94:5F
-b xenbr0 --vnc --vncport=5910 -l -f /dev/vg00/krs -d

Starting install...

I have no idea why virt-install is looking for the xen kernel in :
it's actually here:

I've used the above syntax to install CentOS 5 domUs on the same host
without any problems.  What gives?
