I'm trying to setup a xen environment.
I download xen-2.0-src.tgz, follow the steps from the Xen user's manual,
and got a new kernel that i put in my machine.

I have made a reboot and every thing goes well.

Then i have try to configure a new domain like this
in /etc/xen/xmdefconfig

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
disk = [ 'phy:hda5,xda5,r' ]
root = "/dev/xda5 ro"

then i run "xm create -c vmid=1" and i'm getting this kernel panic

VFS: Cannot open root device "xda5" or unknown-block(2,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)

Someone can point me what i'm doing wrong ?
I'm using Scientific Linux CERN release 3.0.2 (SL), this distribution is
based on Redhat Enterprise 3.
