I want to install a 2003 guest on a Debian Etch with xen binary
packages (apt-get install), but through a vnc console (no graphical
interface). So I launch the xm create in an ssh connection, and want
to connect through vnc to complete the installation of windows.

So the domain gets created with xm create but no VNC port is displayed:
Using config file "2003.hvm".
VNC= 1
Started domain 2003-1

Moreover with an xm list -l" I see:
           (kernel /usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/boot/hvmloader)
           (args 'VNC_VIEWER= ')

So theorically VNC is listenning on port 5501, but netstat -l doesn't
show it, and all VNC connections fail (Connection refused: connect()).

When I do "xm list", the hvm guest have no state, its strange:
Name                                      ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State   Time(s)
2003-1                                     4      512     1 ------      0.0
Domain-0                                   0     5323     4 r-----     25.8

Here's my config file 2003.hvm:
import os, re
arch = os.uname()[4]
if re.search('64', arch):
   arch_libdir = 'lib64'
   arch_libdir = 'lib'
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/boot/hvmloader"
memory = 512
name = "2003-1"
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:00:00:94, bridge=xenbr1' ]
disk = [ 'phy:LVM/2003-1,ioemu:sda,w' ]
device_model = '/usr/' + arch_libdir + '/xen/bin/qemu-dm'

I have vncviewer installed in the host.
Here is the xend-config.xsp file:
(network-script 'network-bridge netdev=eth1')
(vif-script vif-bridge)
(dom0-min-mem 196)
(dom0-cpus 0)
(vnc-listen '')

And here's a "xm dmesg":
(XEN) Xen trace buffers: disabled
(XEN) Xen is relinquishing VGA console.
(XEN) *** Serial input -> DOM0 (type 'CTRL-a' three times to switch
input to Xen).

So any help would be appreciated :)
Thanks in advance!
