ah don't get me wrong, i am sure vmware is a solid product
just a figure of speech. .sucks.. as in.. yah.. i can't solve my problem.
still trying to figure out the part where I need to manually assign the cdrom to different guest domain
i don't have a spare machine for ftp installation, hence that option is out for now.
alot of it is being done in the lab.. for us to get a hands on and better feel so as to prep the knowledge base for upcoming projects
hmm so for those who use Xen, you guys just go with ftp/http/dvd installation?
Distribution: Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.2, Windows 2003 Server/Vista/7/XP/2000/NT/98, Ubuntux64, CentOS4.8/5.4
Yes, when I was using Xen, I just used a DVD ISO to install my OS's and created my own ISO files on another virtual cd-rom drive. For example, I was trying to get Windows Vista to work, but I needed the virtual DVD ISO to be attached, but I also needed a network card driver, so I just told Xen I had 2 cd-rom drives and converted the network card driver into an ISO.
Can you change the path of the source of the CD's? Maybe you can create like 10 cd-rom's in Xen and mount an iso to each cd-rom?
