Need Help with Virtual Machine Manager

I'm not too sure what file is being asked for when creating a new virtual system. The dialogue window from the setup 'wizard' of the Virtual Machine Manager is asking where the installation media is located for the operating system. I have a CD-ROM with the Windows 2000. What is the ISO Image? Where do I get one or how do I create it? I have included a window snapshot to facilitate understanding of my request. I am using FC8 on a dual booted Windows Vista laptop.

Cheers Matt

The easiest thing to do here would be to just make an iso of your physical media. dd works well... for example, if /dev/cdrom is your cdrom drive then:
# umount /dev/cdrom
# dd if=/dev/cdrom of=windows2000.iso
This will make a "windows2000.iso" file in whatever directory you are in.

Edit: I'm more a vmware guy than xen, but last I checked booting the guest from physical cdrom wasn't supported yet. Maybe it is now... either way, I think ripping the cd to ISO is the easiest method overall.
