Hi all, a newbie question; I'm trying to install lenny guest image 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 image using dd, format is ext3 (cfg file). disk is defined as:

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

once i start the installation everything looks good until the point where i'm asked to specify disk driver?
which driver to use as guest image is a file? tried virtio_blk but didn't work.

any help is appreciated as this is a show stopper for me.
