Description of problem:
When using virt-install to install a RHEL4 guest, it fails with
Thu, 18 Apr 2013 10:39:03 ERROR No section: 'images-x86_64'
It's because the .treeinfo for RHEL4, e.g. , lacks [images-x86_64]
section, which is expected in RHEL5 or above. However, it should fall
back use the default hardcoded value instead of failing:
initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
That's what Beaker does it now.
