My experience with F10 PV DomU installs via profiles,described in details at recent post Xen 3.3.1rc1-pre port to CentOS 5.2 via mercurial repos and managing PV DomUs in graphical mode was negative, in regards of not providing an option to utilize local HTTP Mirror (NFS Share).Installer above just activated Xen Ethernet Interface at DomU and with no prompts addressed to Fedora's Internet Repositories,

what was actually, time consuming procedure, even at 100KB/sec (ADSL) connection.Schema bellow works also at Xen 3.3.0 Intrepid Server Dom0 with Novell's Xen-inified kernel, where profiles mentioned above are useless due to some incompatibility between Ubuntu loop devices and F10 ISO structure.
