I'm not familiar with rinse or xen-create-image, but here's what I
know when installing RHEL/Centos on Xen:
1) You can use virt-manager (the easy way), or do it manually (like
2) domU can use xen text console (xvc0 or hvc0), vnc console, or both.
3) If domU is setup using vnc console (like when setup with
virt-manager), text console is usually not used
4) you can always setup text console manually. See
