None of the above.  I managed to fix the problem, but I'm still
confused: I don't know why I needed to do this:

[ksandhu at blizzard]
cd /var/www/mirror/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/i386/os
[ksandhu at blizzard] ln
-s /srv/intranet/iso-images/fedora/linux/releases/8/Fedora/ .

in order to get virt-install to work with my local copy of the Fedora 8
DVD.  I definitely don't need to do this for CentOS 5 or CentOS 4 domUs.

FYI: /var/www/mirror/fedora/linux is a symlink that points to the real
install tree, /srv/intranet/iso-images/fedora/linux.  Maybe this is the
reason why the http location for the virt-install failed.  If so, I
don't understand why.
