Hi all.  I have a scenario that I've tried searching for but I'm a
little unsure of what to be looking for in the first place.

I have a guest domU that was setup using HVM and installed straight from
CD.  The host and guest both happen to be Debian since I'm trying to do
a proof of concept that I can install other guest OS's.  I thought I'd
start simple and install the same OS but from scratch, so to speak.

The issue I have is that I can start the guest domU and connect using
VNC, networking, ssh, etc are all working correctly.  However, since I
only want to use the VNC display when SSH isn't available, I disabled it
in my config file.  When I do that, the guest domain never starts up.
It shows up in an xm list but has not CPU and no state.

So to summarize, my guest domain is only starting up when I have 'vnc=1'
enabled in the config file. Any help on how to get it to start without
using VNC?

Here's my config file
kernel = '/usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/boot/hvmloader'
builder = 'hvm'
memory = '256' 
disk = [
'phy:/dev/xendisks/base_deb,ioemu:hda,w','phy:/dev/cdrom,hdc:cdrom,r' ]
name = base_deb'
vif = ['type=ioemu,bridge=xenbr0,mac=00:19:c0:a8:01:c9']
