I found the following Howto for FC7.

My problem is the file entered on the second window from the top displayed on the following page


AGAIN I ask, Should the file be created first as a file, with dd as an image or does this do it automatically? The person who created the HOWTO selected a file /home/xen/Fedora-7 without saying HOW he created the file/image.

Surely someone here must have used it and must know?

Here is the error message I get and it is not due to the cdrom.
Would someone tell me how they set up the initial file using "Virtual Machine Manager" Gui? I tried creating an image by hand with dd, just using a file etc. asuming the gui will dd it by itself nothing works.
It is not clear what they expect on the "assign storage space" window.

That is the problem with GUI configs, unlike CLI you end up fighting trivial matters easily solved with CLI configs.
If anyone used Virtual Machine Manager" Gui, let me know.
