Installing Ubuntu Guest Domain under Xen/Fedora Host


I'm running Fedora Core 5, and have just downloaded the necessary kernel plus bits to let me run Xen guest domains on my system. A few people have said that Ubuntu is good so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and have a look at it. I downloaded the Ubuntu desktop ISO and I want to install it to a guest domain but I can't for the life of my figure out how.

Can anyone give me some help or point me at a howto?

Thanks in advance.

Regards
David

Configuring and using Xen is a bit complex at the moment, because good end-user front-end tools have not yet been developed (and the hypervisor is not yet standard in the default Fedora kernel).

It will be MUCH easier to use the VMWare free player with the Ubuntu "Virtual Appliance". You'll be up and running in a few minutes, with a nice GUI user interface.
