We use virt-manager here a lot now.
You do not need to ask for a local connection, that is assumed.
Here is an example:
virt-install --noreboot \
--pxe --name=008001-foo.com \
With --noreboot and --wait, our script that calls virt-install can check
exit status, virsh edit (via EDITOR=ed) xml files and then start them up.
If you look at the python scripts, the os-type, os-variant, and arch set
up a number of defaults. You should use them.
We have centos-5.5, f13, ubuntu-10, windows-2k3, and windows-2k8 working
well. Our group does not intend to test windows-xp again, and its been
a year since we last did, so no help there.
As for -c cdrom, that looks like a mess. We always install VMs over PXE
now, so I cannot confirm the selinux issue, sorry.
