Right

 
 Any suggestions on how to create an ovf image? Poking around, I see mentions 
 of tools to convert from ovf, but not to ovf, at least not within the 
 KVM/libvirt world.
 
 I know that this format is used within oVirt, but I don't understand how to 
 go from the *.ovf file in the export domain + the disk image file or files 
 to a single disk image.

Easiest way may be:
- prepare an empty export domain
- prepare a VM in a running oVirt system
- export the VM to the export domain
- create the OVF by tar gzipping the export as described in man 
engine-image-uploader


 Do these have to be zipped together? Is there some utility for that, or 
 guidance on how it comes together?

take a look at engine-image-uploader man page on how the tar.gz must be.
AFAIK there's any available tool for that, maybe you can open an RFE about it.


 
 My cdrom and pxe hosted engine installs have been spotty -- some crashes,
 some unresponsiveness from pxe and from the cd install -- so I'd like to
 know how to take the disk route...
 
 Thanks, Jason
