Default Xen Ubuntu VM Install Question

Hi, I have followed the Howto on Xen in order to install xen (I installed the binary version from page 2 of the Howto) My Linux knowledge is limited so I will have to tell a big story to explain it
Everything went grand. I installed it initially on a Debain system and successfully followed the instructions to create a Debian virtual host, I could log in and generally do everything and anything i wanted within it.
However, I needed to install a Ubunutu image on the server. I found another Howto http://docs.anykey.se/xen-ubuntu/usi...tual-machines/
which detailed how to install the ubuntu system via xen-tools.
This would not work for me no matter what i tried, it always failed on the
debootstrapping part.
So, i decided to wipe the hard drive and go again. This time i started with Ubuntu, and followed your excellet walk through once more to get Xen installed.
Then i switched to the second walkthrough and i managed to get a Ubuntu
domain up and running.
However when i log in to this domain i get this error message:
-bash: no job control in this shell
I cannot use a lot of the tools so i am attempting to get them via apt.
When i run any apt command i am getting a Failed to Fetch message and the
error code (101 Network is unreachable)

Here is the output of my ifconfig on the vm01

root@vmubuntu1:~# ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:3E:75:2A:95
inet addr:10.37.84.35 Bcast:10.255.255.255 Mask:255.0.0.0

TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Could anybody help me out with this problem?
Or if that is too much hassle perhaps point me to a walkthrough for a Ubuntu
virtual machine install (It needs to be Ubuntu of any version)
Thanks and Regards.

You can try the Debian tutorial: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_xen3_debian but use Ubuntu all the way. I haven't tried it, but it should work because both are very similar.

I will try that and let you know my results.
Instead of debootstrapping to the debian instalation, I will try a ubuntu source.
If anybody has tried this could they please advise meof success/pitfalls please.
Thanks.

Yes, that's the correct way.

That Ubuntu system worked after all, however after all my hard work to get it sorted, we now need to switch back to a Debain system.. doh
Anyway, i have one more question i am hoping someone can help me with.
I have created 4 domains, and on the booting of the fifth i get this error message:
Error: Device 769 (vbd) could not be connected. Backend device not found.

So i went to the /boot/grub/menu.lst and added the line regarding the max_loop
value as stated in the howto and i rebooted. However my 4th domain and any others i try to boot still return the same error.
Could there be any other configuration i need to add?
