Hi Daniel,
Let's try to find out what exactly are the issues.
- What is the version you used? I assume 2.0.2?
Other questions below

Hi Jeroen:

I downloaded Geonetwork desktop version and was trying to see the features and i got the following problems

1 -  When  i tried to publish ISO Xml metadata using Batch import and Xml insert  it gave me the following error message
The requested operation could not be performed.
Root element not set

Batch import is a bit sensitive (obviously :-) ) and requires the metadata to use short element names for ISO19115 following ISO 19115 DIS as that was the last version that had a DTD to validate. (With the ISO19139 now almost ready, we are working on a migration to ISO19115:2003 validated using the 19139 schemas, but as said, this is not ready within the coming 6 months except for some beta versions)


2-  I am also having trouble to see any of the sample web map services listed using Inter Map. I get the following error message
The requested operation could not be performed.

There can be an issue related to proxies. Do you have a proxy? In that case you have to update settings in the ../web-intermap/WEB-INF/config.xml file. You can open it in a text editor and enable the proxy and set its IP address. (You would need to do the same for harvesting in the ../web/WEB-INF/config.xml). However, I need better feedback to understand what happens. We have had a workshop just last week with over 20 installations and this problem did not occur (without proxy). Can you reproduce the problem and send fresh log files created by Jetty? 


3 - Is there a way of implementing your own ISO profile like the one you have for FAO using Geonetwork

You can edit the templates online and save them again as templates. The advanced editor allows to modify the full XML structure of the ISO metadata so you can create your own profiles.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other issues. I also encourage you to use the mailing lists for GeoNetwork opensource to allow others to benefit from your experiences and provide feedback to your questions. They can be found on the http://sourceforge.net/projects/geonetwork homepage.

Ciao,
Jeroen

Re: [metadata] ISO 19115 Metadata editor ?





Dear Daniel,

GeoNetwork opensource is a web based catalog including a metadata  
editor for online editing of ISO 19115, FGDC and DC metadata. ISO  
19115 folowing the ISO 19139 implementation standard is currently in  
the works for release in version 2.1 of GeoNetwork opensource. v2.1  
will also include CSW2.0 support.
You can run the software both on a sever and on a PC.

A latest releases (from today!) can be downloaded directly from  
http://geonetwork.sourceforge.net
