Thanks a lot for replying Mark.
I've seen that file. To be honest I don't know how to patch it now.

Well, I can try with centos-5 but I guess the problem still remain, as
regard the error I've posted in the first message here.

Well done.

I use xl, the new toolstack, now.
I've never created a domU using xm (or xl in this circumstance), so
please, could you help me to do that?

So, as far as I understand I can try to setup another domU (choosing
another distro), and it should work for sure.
Isn't it? Could you suggest me an howto, or some instruction to setup
a Suse (for instance) domU with virt-install?

Thank you very much,
