If I load up a new CentOS 5.5 install, then

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://www.gitco.de/repo/GITCO-XEN4.0.1_x86_64.repo
yum install xen
make the xen kernel boot (add pci=nomsi otherwise will hang)
(ps xm dmesg looks fine, xm list shows Domain-0 running)
when I try to add a vm:

virt-install --prompt

after the place where the os loads stage2.img and does a boot it just hangs for 30 seconds and goes away. I checked what is going on by doing it in a vnc session and just gives a boot error. Has anyone seen this? Is there
a way around it?

I also tried to remove all the gitco packages, reboot, install the Virtualization group, reboot, using
Xen 3 and it does the same thing:

# virt-install --prompt
