did you type this or did you copy this from the shell?
There are several errors/typos in it.

virt-install -p --location=ftp://...... --noautoconsole --nographics --
file=/home2/vm/d-minimal.img --file-size=1 --name=d-mini --ram=256

does work.

Even if it's possible to omit the equals signs I would think that "-4" 
*means* "minus 4" .... And ":" for the "=" are surely not allowed I guess.
