I've some problems to create the exact vm template for any distribution
different from Ubuntu. I want to try OpenSuse for my vm's images but or i
get status failed [1] o if I delete the  KERNEL variable in the template I
get "No bootable device". the image isnt corrupted, infact i can use it
using kvm from console (kvm -hda /public/images/osuse.qcow2 -m 1024).
Some suggestions?

PS: It's possible to add in the website some tested and working templates?
