  • Thread-topic: using domain0 file as root disk for domU

I know I've seen this before but can't find it...

Can someone provide a pointer to (or if simple,
just a quick reply) how to use a domain0 file as
a root disk for a domU?

I am able to mount the file as a loopback device:

mount -o loop,offset=512 -t ext2 /var/xen/sda /mnt

But how do I specify it in xmdefconfig?  I tried:

disk = [ 'phy:/mnt,hda1,w' ]

disk = [ '/mnt,hda1,w' ]
