I have CentOS 5.3 x86_64 (Xen version 3.1.2, I think) installed on a
dell 2950 as a Xen master.  I was able to get Window 2003 Server
installed as a guest from an ISO image.  I now need to install CentOS
5.3 as a guest.  However, the install stops at the point where it asks
what type of media contains the packages.  If I select Local CDROM
(which seem sensible) I get "Unable to find any devices of the
type..." etc.

Next I tried editing the config file to add the CDROM explicitly and
designate it as the boot drive.

name = "scacivm01a"
uuid = "92b610b2-90e7-b8e4-32db-ec59ddcff80d"
maxmem = 4096
memory = 4096
vcpus = 2
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub"
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
vfb = [ "type=vnc,vncunused=1,keymap=en-us" ]
disk = [ "phy:/dev/Vol00/vm01a,hda,w",
"file:/var/lib/xen/images/CentOS-5.3-x86_64-bin-DVD.iso,hdc:cdrom,r" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:16:3e:02:03:b1,bridge=xenbr0" ]
boot = "d"

Now it doesn't seem to see the CDROM at all and when trying to boot
from the hard drive panics.

Google is not finding anything helpful.

Any suggestions?
