[virt-tools-list] virt-install 0.400-3: cannot install

I'm trying to do a text-based install using virt-install 0.400-3 on a 
ubuntu server 9.10 but it is refusing to install.  Here is the form of 
the command I'm using:

$ sudo -s
# virt-install -n "DOMAIN-1" --vcpus=4 --ram=2048 --disk 
--accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --nographics 
--extra-args="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200"

I've tried local, nfs, http for locations and it either says its not an 
installable distribution or I get a ValueError: Invalid install 
location.  But I can wget the iso with no problem using the same url.

Can anyone point me to what is wrong with my command line?
