virt-install command for fedora

virt-install -p -r 1024 -n fedora14 -f /dev/domU/fedora14 –location ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/Linux/Fedora/development/14/x86_64/os/ -x ks=”http://chaotic/~kyl191/ks.php?hostname=helium”
-p => paravirtualized
-r => 1024MB of RAM
-n => Name of the new VM
-f => file/location to install to (I believe it’s supposed to be an image file, but an LVM partition works just as well)
–location => Straightforward, location to install from.
-x => extra arguments to pass to installer (In this case, ks refers to kickstart, the Redhat installation scripter. The file it’s referring to is my modified installation file.)
