I haven't tried this with VMM, but you almost certainly have to run 'virsh detach-disk' to unmount the first DVD, and 'virsh attach-disk' to mount the second DVD. virsh is very poorly documented (http://libvirt.org/sources/virshcmdref/html-single/#sect-detach-disk), so you may have to mess around. My old Xen instructions for attaching/detaching iso images *on disk* are below. Try swapping 'file' to 'tap', and 'path-to-iso.iso' to '/dev/sr0', to use physical DVDs. Note that the newer virsh does not use a number to identify your VM, so use your VM name directly instead of '5' below. # virsh list // get the VM ID, say '5' (or just use the name now?) # virsh detach-disk 5 hdc // might not be hdc! # virsh attach-disk 5 path-to-image.iso hdc --driver file --type cdrom --mode readonly > Will KVM handle this differently? I think it will be identical - this has nothing to do with Xen or KVM per se.
