Xen Server and Network Tracking

I have a template xen guest installed with yesterday's rawhide on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-template of xen1. The template has its
networking disabled. If you copy the template to create another guest,
get an IP address assigned, then add it to
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 before enabling it.
Although I am not sure how useful it is to use this template, given that
you can use anaconda to install a new xen guest within minutes.
Any ideas of the best way to make an image file of this LVM volume so
that we can easily copy it to the xen2 server?
I don't think we really need a
template. What i think would be better is a
script that we pass a few paramaters to and creates a lvm volume and gets
the install started.
I guess we could pass to the script the guest name, the size of the logical
volume and the distro to install we could keep in in hardcoded things like
ram (512mb probably sane can be changed later) and the paths to the
distros to install.
and have an optional kickstart config path
