thanks to Pasi Kärkkäinen on the CentOS-virt mailing list for pointing this out. It looks like there is a provision for installing F10 on a RHEL5 system (the current prgmr.com servers are CentOS 5.2, though the next server will be Xen 3.3)


uh, more explanation here:


So here is what I did:

wget http://crobinso.fedorapeople.org/rhel5/install_f10/python-virtinst-0.300.2-11.el5.noarch.rpm
wget http://crobinso.fedorapeople.org/rhel5/install_f10/xen-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm
wget http://crobinso.fedorapeople.org/rhel5/install_f10/xen-devel-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm 
wget http://crobinso.fedorapeople.org/rhel5/install_f10/xen-libs-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -e --nodeps python-virtinst-0.300.2-8.el5
rpm -i python-virtinst-0.300.2-11.el5.noarch.rpm
rpm --force -i xen-libs-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm --nodeps -e xen-3.0.3-64.el5_2.1
rpm -i xen-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i xen-devel-3.0.3-73.el5.x86_64.rpm
/etc/init.d/xend restart

and now, I've got to virt-install a f10 guest
