  • Thread-topic: xen kernel panics at boot

Hi.  I am trying to install xen 2.0.5 and am having problems getting the xen kernel to boot.  It seems to come up, recognize the PCI bus info, the CPU, memory, and such, and then halts when it gets to trying to mount NFS.  It then asks for a boot floppy. 
My guess is that it is not finding the / partition.  The actual kernel panic string, I don't have because the screen blanks so quickly.  Below is the last message where it halts, in addition to my grub.conf file. 
Root NFS:  No NFS server available, giving up
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy
VFS: Insert floppy and press Enter
[root@flubber ~]# cat /etc/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda9
# initrd /initrd-version.img
