Hi all, a newbie question.

I'm trying to install lenny guest image (in an img file) on my lenny Dom0 by following the http://wiki.debian.org/Xen:
xm create -c xm-debian.cfg install=true install-mirror=ftp://ftp.XX.debian.org/debian

i created the xen-lenny-image.img using dd, format is ext3. disk is defined as (cfg file):

disk = ['tap:aio:/xen/images/xen-lenny-image.img,xvda,w']

once i start the installation everything looks good until the point where installation process asks to specify disk driver?
which driver to use as guest image is a file? i would assume some generic driver like virtio_blk but it didn't work (installation won't proceed).
am i missing something?

any help is appreciated.
