Hi Mike:

Just a quick follow up. It was trivial to get things working using NFS
-- thank you. But I still can't get the http boot to work. Could there
be some sort of bug or am I just missing something?

I did some testing this morning and I wasn't able to get Fedora 14 to boot from an HTTP repository. I tried the Other install media, RHEL 6 and CentOS 5 templates, and each time I got errors from eliloader. Unfortunately this isn't totally unexpected: eliloader does some really OS-specific things with the repositories, and none of our supported templates were made to work with Fedora. I've heard that someone here is working on making eliloader a little more generic, but I'm not really familiar with what's going on there.

The best way to do what you want to do is definitely to export your ISOs on an NFS share and mount them on your pool as an ISO SR. Hope that helps,
