I am also curious to know about this. I reckon, the pygrub will have to support booting from a ISO9660 media like CD. I don't know if pygrub supports it now, or how easy to modify it to support this. It will be very useful feature, because then I can boot a domU  using installation live CD of any distribution and install the OS in domU.

Does anyone know what kind of changes will have to be made to get this functionality?

Hi, I newbie with Xen.

I can boot a DOMU Linux (Xen 3.0) from cdrom ?

I like to boot from cdrom to install a linux distro (debian or centos).

Or I must other tools to install it (ie. bootstrap with debian) ?

Thanks in advance.
