 I have read this wiki and put it to work, plus instructions in how to use it, on the new Xen Live CD v2.0.
 Just boot the Xen LiveCD on your machine and read the README file at the section 3.4, as follows:

  3.4 - Booting the Debian Installer within a PVM

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.
