Hi Corey,

Thanks for the patch, though current virtinst release 0.400.0 should
have this fixed, I updated the suse kernel fetching to work with their
latest tree structure a couple months ago.

Check out https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=449129 , this
is being tracked for RHEL 5.3, and there is a patch in that bug that
should fix your problems. If it doesn't, please follow up in the bug
report.

Thanks,
Cole
