Sorry about not getting back earlier, but Thursday was a late night of
installation madness for me (at work, unfortunately, not at home!).

Anyway, I'm running CentOS 5.1 x86_64 + Xen 3.1, so it sounds (and
from my experiments) like whatever I do, I'm going to get a logical
disk for the domU instead of a mounted file system.  I did notice a
new option (root =) in the config file of the Virtutopia link Kai

As far as my installer, that would be 'vi' and 'xm create'!  I started
with the visual one (forgot the name) and haven't used virt-manager
(?) at all.  I figure once I have a base config, laying out the disk
isn't a problem and then I copy the config tweak the network or
whatever and go from there.  Unless you mean the domU Linux installer,
and that would be Anaconda.

What I found interesting is that if I allocate something in dom0,
format it, and then add it as sda3/sdb1 for my domU, 'fdisk -l'
reports it as having an invalid partition table.  So, maybe it's not
the installer after all... and that what comes with CentOS only takes
a disk.

Now I just need to play with the RAID 5 config and see if it's ok for
me or not.  :-)


P.S.  Kai - The only thing other than xvda that works was sda1 (which
still is a disk, so the partitions get goofy).
