Default About KVM installation

Hi folks,

Ubuntu 8.04 server amd64, headless
KVM 1:62+dfsg
QEMU 0.9.1
OpenSSH 1:4.7p1

The server is running ready to install guest OS remotely.

I'm prepared to install Ubuntu 6.06 server amd64 as guest. I don't have its ISO.image. But I have its CD installer which was made by burning its ISO image.

Any folk has followed before;

I don't understand following steps;

# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0002c5b4

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          31      248976   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              32       19457   156039345    5  Extended
/dev/sda5              32       19457   156039313+  8e  Linux LVM

I already ran;
# qemu-img create -f qcow2 ubuntu6.06.img 10G
Formatting 'ubuntu6.06.img', fmt=qcow2, size=10485760 kB

# find / -name ubuntu6.06.img
I can ssh connect the server. Do I need to start the installation with the VNC option?

I don't have VNC running on the server. Which of the following packages needed to install?

kvm -hda disk01.img -cdrom os.iso -m 512 -boot d -vnc IP:1
I suppose here replacing;
disk01.img with "ubuntu6.04.img"
os.iso with "/path/to/cdrom"
What shall I replace hda here?

Do I need to run;
kvm -hda disk01.img -m 512 -boot c -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:16:3e:00:00:01 -net tap -nographic -daemonize

Please shed me some light. TIA
