The mirror addresses are right, but you cannot just throw any mirror
address at any installer - the installer needs to know how to handle
the installation right for each distribution, and in most cases even
distribution versions differ quite a bit.

Try debootstrap, or xen-tools.

As far as my experience goes, the images created with these, don't
work on Fedora with the Fedora Xen packages. (don't work means, I
could not start them successfully, have the errors not at hand, but
there are some threads on fedora-xen that wheren's solved)

At least I tried a lot, and didn't get them to work, while the exact
same image runs 100% perfect with XenSource binaries on Fedora.

Did you also try this, and did you have any issues, or did it work
just out of the box for you?
