    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;
    http://www.howtoforge.com/using-kvm-on-ubuntu-gutsy-gibbon


    I don't understand following steps;

    # fdisk -l
    Code:
    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
    Code:
    Formatting 'ubuntu6.06.img', fmt=qcow2, size=10485760 kB
    

    # find / -name ubuntu6.06.img
    Code:
    /root/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?
    Code:
    vnc4server 
    linuxvnc 
    python-gtk-vnc
    

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


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


    Please shed me some light. TIA
