How do I install NetBSD in a domU on a system running Debian Sarge as dom0?

Burn a NetBSD 3.0 installation CD and use netbsd-INSTALL_XENU as your kernel
during the installation. When the virtual machine boots for the first time
install NetBSD from the CD-ROM as usual (except the CD device is now
/dev/xbd1d). Once done with the installation, shutdown the VM and change the
kernel to netbsd-XENU.
I tried doing that. My config file for the startup-domU looks like this (similar to http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/xen/howto.html):

kernel = "/boot/netbsd-INSTALL_XENU"
memory = 256
name = "NetBSD-Test"
vif=['mac=ae:00:00:78:bd:00, ip=']
disk = [ 'file:/var/xentemp/i386cd-3.0.iso,cd0a,r', 'phy:/dev/LVMvg01/NetBSDTest-boot,wd0d,w' ]
root = "/dev/wd0d"

When I try to start the domU for installing NetBSD I get:

xm create NetBSD-starter.cfg -c
Using config file "NetBSD-starter.cfg".
Error: Error creating domain: vbd: Device not found: wd0d

Handing over dom0 LVM partitions to domU kernels normally is no problem. There is obviously something I overlook - please help me, I am new to installing NetBSD in general.
