Virtual machine manager HELP.
Hi all,

First of all let me just say that I am quite new to Linux.

Ok, here goes my problem:
At the moment I am using Fedora 12 and would like to use Virtual Machine Manager to install Windows Xp (just in case) but I am having problems on creating an img on a partition i have in other disk.
I already tried it out in the system disk and it worked out fine but since I have few space on the system disk I decided that I wanted it somewhere else.
I managed to create a new File system and give him the path to where I wanted the img to stored but when I try and add a new it just doesn't do it
Does it have anything to do with permission in the partition, or, or?

Please help

Thanks beforehand

The partition and its permissions need to be added to /etc/fstab.

or at least mounted.

That was done. I guess the problem was that the partition where I wanted to create the image was formated in Fat32 and it looks like that Virt-Manager doesn't like it and since changing it to Ext everything works fine.
Thanks anyway for the help.
