I'm trying with NFS,HTTP to install Fedora 9 DomU on Fedora 8 Dom0 using "virt-install"......but still not able finish the work sitting whole day !!!

Help me out !!!

These are the various options that i tried for " disk path ":-----
      1. created 4GB image with ext3 ----- did not work and error "Invalid file location given: No such file or directory"
      2. created 4GB LVM partition with ext3----same error " Sun, 14 Sep 2008 19:26:38 ERROR  Invalid file location given: No such file or directory"
      3.  i thought the problem with the installation source  so created  NFS  share  like  "[root@Hadoop10 /]# cat /etc/exports
                                                                                                                                                        /F9files/,sync) "
4.  /F9files folder contains files copied from Fedora9 DVD.iso loop back mount.

whether the problem with "disk path"  or NFS share. In the past i  installed using a Template but i want to install with virt-install and NFS,HTTP like that.....

The output goes here:
             [root@Hadoop10 /]# virt-install
