NOTES

         This script is invoked by xen-create-image after to create a new
        distribution of Linux.  Once the script has been created the companion
        script xt-customize-image will be invoked to perform the network
        configuration, etc.

INSTALLATION METHODS

         There are several available methods of installation, depending upon the
        users choice.  Only one option may be chosen at any given time.

         The methods available are:

       debootstrap Install the distribution specified by the --dist argument
       using the debootstrap.  If you use this option you must specify a
       mirror with --mirror.
       copy Copy the given directory recursively.  This local directory is
       assumed to contain a complete installation.  Specify the directory to
       copy with the --install-source argument.
       rinse Install the distribution specified by --dist using the rinse
       command.
       rpmstrap Install the distribution specified by --dist using the
       rpmstrap command.
       tar Untar a .tar file into the new installation location.  This tarfile
       is assumed to contain a complete archived system.   Specify the
       directory to copy with the --install-source argument.
