Thanks Rolf, it works very fine.

I'm now struggling with another stupid bit : I don't seem to be able
to mount a vbd device in domain 0. I was able to create the vd, but
the java source doesn't seem to allow to mount a vbd in domain 0. For
a good reason, probably.

What I'm trying to do is basically :
- create a virtual drive
- populate it with a live linux fs and distro (from domain 0)
- booting a xenolinux on this virtual drive

I have another, more general question : why are the tools based on a
java front end ? As far as I understand, the java stuff just calls the
low level C stuff. The java build and runtime environnement looks even
uglier, when in presence of the nice Xen "do it light and fast" stuff.
