Oracle VM Server x86: Installing Oracle VM Manager

First check the hardware requirements:

After downloading the right image (please do not laugh, this is really a problem), inside a Oracle Linux the following steps have to be done:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
mount: /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
# ls /mnt/
components       oracle-validated.params  sample.yml  ovmm-installer.bsx        TRANS.TBL
First try:
[root@localhost ~]# /mnt/
Missing required package, Oracle VM Manager requires 'iptables-services' to be installed, you can use 'yum install iptables-services' to install it.
[root@localhost ~]# yum install iptables-services
And here we go:
# /mnt/
