[libvirt-users] How to create a guest os from existing disk image file



Hi
I have configured KVM with Fedora Core 13 by enabling the KVM virtualization option while installing OS.
I have successfully created the guest OS by using the virt-install API

/usr/sbin/virt-install --name centos5 --ram 512 --disk path=/var/lib/libvirt/images/
centos.img,size=5 --network network:default --accelerate --vnc -c /tmp/CentOS-5.3-i386-bin-DVD.iso

I am able to login to the guest OS using the virt-viewer command using vnc
Now i want to the guest os from the existing configured disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/centos.img.. What modifications should be done with my configuration file ??
Pleas help me to solve this.

[root kvmcluster ~]# virsh dumpxml centos5
