No.

There must be a file named according to the MAC address of the box you
want to PXE-boot.

Did you sync?
cobbler sync

Default Installation issue with cobbler

7. When I select fc7xenwebservers then I get the error, "Invalid or
corrupt kernel image". Can anyone help me ?
If I select local nothing happens.



You can't PXE boot a Xen kernel/initrd pair.

Those are for installing paravirt Xen guests, not hosts.

I would suspect if you did "cobbler profile report fc7xenwebservers" you
would find

that the distro has the name "xen" in it somewhere.

I think what you will need to do is use the Fedora 7 distro to do the
install, however in your kickstart file you should include kernel-xen so
that the xen kernel is installed if you are going to be setting up xen
vm's on the server

Yes, if you are installing on real metal that is what you should do.
