sweet that fixed that part now getting the Device 0 (vif) to work
n.b i also installed xen-hypervisor-3.0.3-1-i386 and rebooted.

I just went into /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp and enabled "(network-script network-bridge)", and then /etc/init.d/xend restart
now when i do xm list

Name                                      ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State   Time(s)
Domain-0                                   0      144     1 r-----     50.6
mailserver                                 2       64     1 -b----      3.3

Thanks tony it seams it was all up to the kernel now just need to figure out how the rest works.

do you know if i can do
root    = '/mnt/hdg1 ro'
disk    = [ 'file:/home/xen/domains/mailserver/disk.img, /mnt/hdg1,w', 'file:/home/xen/domains/mailserver/swap.img,/mnt/hdg4,w' ]

how do i know what is mean to be in the disks section?

hdg1 and hdg4 are 80gb hard disk in my computer that i have formated to be ext3 hard disks.

output of xm console mailmaster i get this
Begin: Waiting for root file system... ...
for a good while
then i get

        Check root= bootarg cat /proc/cmdline
        or missing modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev
ALERT! /mnt/hdg1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

But it does exist
|-- hdg1
|   `-- lost+found
`-- hdg4
    `-- lost+found

and if i change that /mnt/hdg1 to just hdg1 i get same error

Thanks again Tony

Is vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-686 a xen guest image?  Normally kernels like that
have 'xen' in their name somewhere.
