        My DomU already has the control of the SATA device, and work really 
fine. But as you said, the hardrive and the DVD-RW are on the IDE 
controller. :-(

        Jun suggested iSCSI or AoE, but I could not find a implementation 
"ready for production". Anyone tried this before?

        IÂm trying to avoid using Dom0. Everything is working in DomUs, 
including the "file server".

p.s. please, it is possible to configure the mailing list server to 
include a "reply-to" pointing to the list address? If you just reply to 
a msg it goes to the sender and not to the list.
