I'd like to use an ISO image to install a guest domain, but I'm having
some problems.  How do you boot from a CD?

Attached is my non-working config

Basically, I have a disk, sdb, that I have dedicated to guest domains. 
And, I can take apart the installation.iso if I need to, but I'm not
really sure where to start.

thanks in advance,



David Frascone
