Description of problem:
The virtualization document is missing any reference to install a guest via
There is only a reference to virt-install in Section 20 under Guest

Would be useful to have a section under virsh / or earlier.
Would be useful to have a reference in the Installtion Guide as well.

Chris, do we have this in yet?
This bug has occurred in an older version of the Virtualization Guide. The new
version of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Virtualization Guide will not be based
on this version. The Virtualization Guide will be rewritten and re-based off the
present Virtualization Cookbook.
We may not have time to fix this bug in previous versions due to resource and
I'm going to slap down my previous message. This is getting a fix. I am getting
information on this now.
I've got a knowledge base fix for it that I am incorporating into the guide for
scripting with virt-install. However after closer inspection it's already pretty
detailed in the Virtualization cookbook which will be the new virtualization
guide for 5.2. Review the link here
to verify the information on virt-install is present. The ball is back in your
court for whether the bug is fixed or not.
I am ok with the update in the cookbook
closing the bug then. The cookbook will be the Virt Guide in 5.2
