you have to be more clear about which stage in the process you are before anyone can help you.

As VictorienSardou said, you provide too little information about the problem. With that said perhaps this url can help? http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Tools/Xen

Noobie in virtualization and NFS server

I am runnning in RHEL5 (yes i know i am a noobe and well i want to learn from the best OS in the market )
Ok when i want to install a new Virtual Os i complete everything on the Virtualization Manager,
1) New Virtual OS
2) name the OS
3) paravirtualized (The only one i can select)
4) Select source of install <- HEre i dont understand how to acomplish this.
For the reasons that it only asks for NFS, HTTP, FTP, and well i dont know how to configure either of them to load the dvd-iso i have on the rom.

The thing is that in Fedora the virtualization manager is diferent. Any help plz?

Virt-manager app is the same in both RHEL5 and FC6 and F7. Just make sure cd/dvd is mounted before starting the wizard and its name/label should appear in the list. If all else fails you can do it from the command line too, but that gets a little involved for a message board posting, so you'll need to search for some howtos.

[Climber@mavrodaphne ~]$ cd /usr/bin/
[Climber@mavrodaphne bin]$ ls qemu*
qemu        qemu-img   qemu-mipsel      qemu-system-mips    qemu-system-x86_64
qemu-arm    qemu-kvm   qemu-ppc         qemu-system-mipsel
qemu-armeb  qemu-m68k  qemu-sparc       qemu-system-ppc
qemu-i386   qemu-mips  qemu-system-arm  qemu-system-sparc
Also note I'm using KVM not Xen with F7, but the same virt-manager app works for both technologies, as I used Xen with FC6:

You might want to look at getting a CPU that does full hardware virtualization if you're planning on running Windows though. Para-virtualization really only works with Linux distros, which is main reason I built my new AMD X2 4400+ BTW.
