I was trying to install using virt-manager whit FTP to point to the 
files (mounted with loop) in the field "Install Media URL", but it was 
always failing with the message was not finding the installation files.
For me works only if I extract the files from the iso image and access 
using NFS.

The FTP works fine if I use inside the kickstart.
