Hi there,

I've two question about install a Vm using Pxe Boot.

1) Pxe boot option always appears in grey on my graphical virt-install, is 
there a way to activate it ?

2) For an app, i'm building Xml file for VM and use virsh define "to deploy" it.

I want the new VM to directly start using Pxe boot, so i put this in the Xml 
file :

(Virsh define don't give me any error when i do a "define")
But the VM don't start, error message is : "Bootloader didn't return any data"
What i have to put into the Xml / Config file to make the VM boot on Pxe ???

Hope someone have the answer (Google wasn't my friend with this)

My config : 
CentOS 5.4 / Xen 3.4.1 (Gitco)
Libvirt 0.7
