hi,

as I got exactly the same problems as you I did some more research. I found this tutorial on a french site where the author uses a debootstrap backport. The article is in french, but you should get the details. I got some problems installing the package via apt on an amd64 box, so I downloaded the .deb manually and installed with dpkg. And guess what, with the new package debootstrapping hardy using xen-create-image works like a charm

Code:
xen-create-image --hostname=hardy --ip=xx.xx.xx.xx --size=10Gb --memory=256Mb --dist=hardy --mirror=http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/u.com/ubuntu/
ah, almost forgot - the golden link: http://howto.landure.fr/gnu-linux/de...bian-4-0-etch/

UPDATE: i wrote a short summary on my blog - http://maff.ailoo.net/2008/10/deboot...etch-xen-dom0/

cheers,
-- maff
