Do you have a system installed in this disk? Are you passing the path
of menu.lst in your configuration?
extra = "(hd0,0)/boot/grub/menu.lst"

I used a Debian lenny as dom0 and domU and it is working fine to me.
To partitioning the logical volume, I used the fdisk and, to access
it, I used kpartx. After mapped the partitions in /dev/mapper/, I
formated and I installed the system using debootstrap. I needed to
edit some files like /etc/fstab, /boot/grub/menu.lst, /etc/securetty
and /etc/inittab and to copy the kernel, and  initrd.img and the
modules into virtual machine partition.
