Configuration is as follows

Hardware Sun X2200
virt-manager : 0.4.0

I am able to successfully run RHEL 3.0 update 5 as DomU in fully
virtualized mode when i try creating a VM using virt-manager in
paravirtualized mode i get the following errors

Unable to complete install 'exceptions.OSError [Errno 2] No such file
or directory: '/var/lib/xen/virtinstmnt.O_oVgK'
