LOL....no it doesn't work with me. I changed the name to that but it still
shows up as description unknown and I can't create a VM from it as it
doesn't show in my list. The reason why I asked what is wrong is because I
followed the description of the post and changed the name to
centos-5-default_5.5_amd64.tar.gz
but it still doesn't work. So, is the format of the syntax wrong?

Thanks
