I use virt-manager to create a guest. But always the default storage pool is chosen. I have already created another storeage pool. What should I do so the guest will be created in that storage pool?

IIRC, I've had to stop then delete the "default" pool, then create a new pool named "default" pointing to my custom pool directory. Just creating a new one didn't take; when creating a guest it would still use the old "default". However there's probabl an easier/better way to achieve this...
