screen shot with error when installting with DVD

Description of problem:

There are two issues I am facing.

1) When I try to install the Guest OS using CDROM, I am getting "Boot Failed: Could not read from CDROM (code 0003)" error message. Attached a screen shot of the same.
2) Then I try to use iso image from hard drive and the installation hangs in the middle with the kernel stack trace. I have attached the stack trace with the bug.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat 6.0 snapshot 7 refresh.

How reproducible:
Try to install redhat 5.5 as guest os using VMM on rehdat 6.0 with KVM support.

This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.

** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **

I tried with snapshot8 of redhat 6.0. With this, I was able to install the guest OS using iso image option. I am getting same error with DVD option with snapshot8 as well.

Are you installing using virt-install? There was a bug which has been fixed recently that allows using the host's cdrom device for guest installs.

Bug 616480 is the bug with virt-inst; so maybe this is a dup.

I'll close it as a duplicate of 616480.
If it is not the case, I suspect this is something todo with picking the right boot partition. In that case please provide the rpms versions for seabios, kernel, qemu-kvm and libvirt.

Is the fix discussed in bug 616480 is available in Redhat 6.0 snapshot 9?
