Replying to old thread.. today I tried installing F11 i386 domU with
virt-install on centos 5.3 x86_64 dom0, and it doesn't seem to work..
The graphical VNC console doesn't show up, and it seems the domU kernel
x86_64 domU installation on x86_64 dom0 seems to work though.
Are you sure i386 on x86_64 worked for you?
