Question The Perfect Xen 3.0 Setup For Debian - Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.

Firstly thanks for all the great tutorials, the site is a proper goldmine!

I am having a problem installing Xen on a Sun X2100 after successfully installing it on various Pentium 4 machines.

When restarting and attempting to boot Xen I get the following:

Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER
I have no floppy so I hit ENTER and in restarts.

It has been suggested that this may be to do with the added stansa in the grub menu.lst .

I added the following before ### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST:

title        Xen 3.0.1 / XenLinux 2.6.12-xen0
root        (hd0,0)
kernel        /xen.gz dom0_mem=65536
module        /vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/sda6 ro console=tty0
Compared to the original:

title           Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386 root=/dev/sda6 ro
initrd          /initrd.img-2.6.8-2-386
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Many thanks,
