Now I'm trying to get a domU installed and am having trouble with the install media urls which are not clearly explained anywhere on the internet. All I see is use a valid install url without any explanation of what that actually is. For example, you would think you could use a .iso file, but you cannot. It doesn't appear that you can use a local install extract as all I see are FTP, HTTP or NFS servers.

The install media URL is a URL that points to your OS distribution
tree. eg, in Fedora world it'd be

  http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/

If you have mounted the DVD ISO image somewhere and exportedvia NFS,
HTTP or FTP, you can point to that

Again, the top level directory of the particular OS distro install
media.
