I'm on a x86_64 F11 host.
I created with success CentOS 5.3 and Windows 2003 vms from iso images.
If i try to create a VM from virt-manager with pxe, I see from ps that
there is the
-boot n
option, but there aren't any
-tftp dir
-bootp file

Is there any default for qemu and/or virt-manager?
If this helps, I'm trying to create a qemu/kvm virtual machine.
ps output is:

root      3577     1 99 14:52 ?        02:37:30 /usr/bin/qemu-kvm -S
-M pc -m 768 -smp 1 -name slackware64 -uuid
4e3c9c56-695a-b5a5-ff87-ab0807b19d63 -monitor pty -pidfile
/var/run/libvirt/qemu//slackware64.pid -no-reboot -boot n -drive
file=/dev/vg_qemu01/slack64,if=ide,index=0 -net
nic,macaddr=54:52:00:56:19:31,vlan=0 -net
tap,fd=19,script=,vlan=0,ifname=vnet3 -serial pty -parallel none -usb
-vnc -soundhw es1370

The installation remains in attemp to get the tftp file without
success (it give "no filename")
It seems that the guest gets one of the available ip provided by
dhcpd, also it founds dhcpd and tftp server: both are set to (the server itself with its virbro default interface).
No configuration done by me.
I see /etc/libvirt/qemu/networks/default.xml with some parameters but
I don't know if and how I can put here also tftp settings....

Thanks for any pointer.
