[Xen-users] Errors creating Domu with xl/xm on Xen 4.1.5 with Fedora Dom0

I want to get couple of DomUs running with Xen. I installed Xen 4.1.5 from source on a Fedora 17 Dom0.

I did some reading on configuring DomUs using xl/xm and cfg files.

So basically I create the cfg file, and do "xm/xl create xmf16install -c"
This is one of my cfg files.

vif = [ 'bridge=br0' ]
kernel = "/home/fedora16pxe/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/home/fedora16pxe/initrd.img"

The CentOS/Fedora installers are being launched, but I think I am running into a problem when the installers ask for HTTP location from where to pickup the images for install. I got different kinds of errors each time (I tried multiple installations (F15,16, F17, CentOS5).Â

Some of the errors I got from the anaconda installers wereÂ
(F12, CentOS5)
'' loader received SIGSEGV! ÂBacktrace: Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â ÂÂ
install exited abnormally [1/1]Â

"Unable to read package metadata. This may be due to a missing  Ââ
   â repodata directory. ÂPlease ensure that your install tree has  Ââ
   â been correctly generated.                    Ââ
   â                                 Ââ
   â Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: â
   â updates. Please verify its path and try again Â"

I am guessing there is a problem when it tries to connect to the internet to download packages.Â
I have also attached my domU cfg file for reference in the email.Â

Could someone point out where am I going wrong ?

Is there something wrong with my cfg files. Or is something else the issue here ?
