There's nothing much to do, really. Last time I test I was using RHEL5
with gitco's xen 4.x, and self-compiled kernel based on RHEL's config.
The size change just works. However since my implementation now uses
partition table on the block device, the online resize feature is not
much use for me (since I'd also have to resize the partition, which
must be done offline).

Since you say you're using SLES, perhaps you'll find more help on
their list/forum/support.
