Re: [Xen-users] Partition vs disk images

I didn't find a way to directly install on the LV, but it's possible to 
install like normal to xvda and just use one partition (one could use 
more, but then it gets more complex). Then attach another LV and copy the 
the system over:
cp -ax /{bin,boot,etc,home,lib,media,mnt,opt,root,sbin,srv,tmp,usr,var} 

create dev, proc and sys directories
change fstab and grub.conf (to use /dev/sda1 or whatever you name it)
disable selinux in /etc/selinux/config
xm create the new vm with a config file that fits

This is outlined in more detail here:
but you don't have to do all these steps, just what I did.
