Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Install from ISO?
are there any web how to's you can reference?

I use xen-tools to deplay most of my Vm's and the way I do this is by a direct 
copy from a mounted Xen image to the 'empty hard drive' of the new Vm.

PV (paravirtual) guests cannot really be installed from ISO, so you need
to install it as HVM (fully virtualized/emulated) guest, and then after
installation install a PV capable kernel and change the guest cfgfile to
run it as a PV guest.
