Ah yes, I forgot that the new interface had a text error on RHEL5
systems. This has been fixed upstream. I would recommend building from
upstream source, if not, I will be cutting a new release in a few weeks.

In order to connect an iso to a remote machine via virt-manager, the iso
must be available in a storage pool on the remote machine. This is not
specific virt-manager 0.8.0, that is how it has always been since we
supported remote management.

WRT to the disabled browse button, there would be a nice tooltip
explaining that browsing isn't available for remote connections,
unfortunately RHEL5 doesn't support the easy GTK APIs to make this work.

Sorry you hit these problems. Hopefully it works out for you.
