Hi,

I have a fully updated Fedora 11 with Virtualization. My laptop is a
Dell Latitude E6400, 4 Gb of memory, Intel P9500 dual core processor
with virtualization support.

I want to install Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop (AMD64) as a guest in Fedora. What
is the easiest way of installing it such that I have internet access,
USB, and possibly RS-232 serial port access?

You can install Ubuntu easily from the live CD.  Download the ISO from
here:

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

then start up virt-manager and click through to install a new guest
from an ISO.  Alternately you can do it from virt-install, something
along these lines:

lvcreate -L 10G -n Ubuntu VG
virt-install -v -n Ubuntu \
   --accelerate -r 512 \
   -c /tmp/ubuntu-9.04-desktop-i386.iso  -f /dev/VG/Ubuntu

Rich.

Thank you, this worked great with Ubuntu 9.04 (i386). It feels pretty easy to get a virtual machine going. Being a programmer myself, I can well appreciate how much work you and your team had to put in to make it so easily done.
