[Xen-users] Boot problem with a "scsi" disk

I would like to use Xen (or, at least, to see how it works) but I cannot boot 
it. I have an old laptop with a USB 1.0 and a pcmcia card with 2 USB2.0 ports 
on it, and a SuSE 9.3 I cannot delete my windows from the primary hd, so I 
have the /boot on 
it (/dev/hda2) and the root on the external hard disk (/dev/sda5) which is 
connected to the laptop throug the pcmcia card. I had to make an initrd to 
boot it with the following modules: yenta_socket, pcmcia, ehci-hcd, ohci.hcd, 
uhci-hcd, scsi_mod, sd_mod, usb-storage, piix, and reiserfs. And it works for 
my "normal" SuSE 9.3.
But, when I try to start "xen", I got the following scenarios:
if I connect the external hard disk to the pcmcia, the system doesn't see it 
at all;
if I connect the external hard disk to the usb 1.0, the system see it but end 
up saying ". not found... (etc..)"; sometimes I also got an error about 
uhci_hcd going down for some reason ("something bad happened"); if I try with 
the boot option "physdev_dom0_hide=(00:07.02)", the system hang up without 
seeing my hard disk.
Unfortunately, I have no way to print the messages from the console.
I know that maybe it is a problem you already talked of, but I could not find 
an answer on your mailing list. 
I hope someone could help me.
