Hi all,

I am using the FC7 with kernel 2.6.20-2936.fc7xen,
I make my disk img using
dd if=/dev/zero of=xen.img bs=1k count=10000000
and then I do nothing with the file xen.img, is there any operations I
should do with the xen.img?
Nope. Next time, though, consider leaving space in your LVM volume groups to create LVM volumes instead, because the use of LVM partitions instead of file images allows LVM "snapshots" to be used for backup operations or poking around safely inside the Dom0, by looking at the snapshot instead of the active filesystem.
