    Thumbs down How to install CentOS 5.2 DomU under openSUSE 11 Dom0

    Hello,

    I installed openSUSE 11 and Xen Virtualization from openSUSE-11.0-DVD-x86_64.iso.
    I need to install a CentOS 5.2 as domU from iso image.
    If I install a new VM via Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), after creating VM and booting, installation can not find the DVD and the installation can not continue.
    After search related info, I found that many faced with such a problem.
    Also, I have found information that CentOS can install via booting from the iso image, and further
    to continue the installation from NFS share or from HTTP,
    before creating these resources on the host system.

    So is there a setup using an image from a jailtime.org
    But this option is not entirely understood by me.
    I ask me to explain - in what is still the best way to install CentOS as domU.

    Even i wouldn't understand Apache Server good enough to
    create local HTTP mirror via ISO image at Dom0. It's always possible
    to create image file via virt-install in text mode
    at CentOS 5.2 Dom0. Then "scp" it to Suse11 Dom0 and load DomU:-
    # cat CentOS52.cfg
    name='CentOS52PV'
    memory='1024'
    kernel=/etc/xen/vm/vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.xen
    ramdisk=/etc/xen/vm/initrd-2.6.18-92.xen
    extra='root=/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00'
    # scp'ed image file
    disk=['file:/etc/xen/images/centos.img,xvda,w']
    vif =['bridge=eth(x)']
    # xm create -c CentOS52.cfg
    VNC at DomU may be setup afterwards
