I have now tried installing debian dom0 using the packages from
http://packages.debianbase.de/ and the instructions from
http://tomas.andago.com/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/wiki/XenSarge but with a ATA
hard drive rather than the standard SATA drive that comes with the IBM
xSeries 206 and WAM - it works a treat. I think this could be an issue
with the SATA drive/controller here. What should i do here? Is this a
bug or something?
