    question on installing KVM client direct on Internet


    Hi folks,

    Debian 5.0 - host
    KVM

    I have the captioned KVM box running. Client vm10 was installed from net.iso CD and vm11 cloned on vm10. Both are now running without problem.

    Now I want to create vm12 running Fedora/Ubuntu direct installed on Internet. Please advise the steps/command to be run. Pointer would be appreciated.

    TIA

    When It asks for Install media, select "Network Install (HTTP/FTP or NFS)"
    Provide the fedora repository, and kickstart file.
    Thats all.
    Never make any misteaks.

    Hi b2bwild,

    Thanks for your advice.

    I ran following command installing the client;
    Code:
    $ sudo virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n vm10 -r 512 --vcpus=2 -f ~/vm10.qcow2 -s 12 -c /path/to/debian-501-i386-netinst.iso --vnc --noautoconsole --os-type linux --os-variant debianLenny --accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --hvm
    It won't ask for install mediat. I can't figure out how to replace the install media above "/path/to/debian-501-i386-netinst.iso" with HTTP/FTP etc.

    TIA
