Re: [Xen-devel] Automation scripts

I would certainly appreciated this. Then I can keep my automation roughly in 
line with what's going to happen anyway, so I can move from my system to the 
official one without too much pain. I'm certain the official one will be much 
better anyhow :o)

Another little query about the LVM stuff: I'm using kernel 2.6 so does this 
rule out the LVM option? The package note for Sarge's LVM2 says that it works 
with 2.4 only.

Thanks Mark.
