    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to install Ubuntu (either 7.10 or 8.04) as a XEN domU guest on a CentOS 5 / Fedora Core 8 XEN dom0 server?

    I have tried installing Ubuntu as a fully virtualized guest, but the Ubuntu CD doesn't even bootup. I get the Linux bootloader, and that's it,it doesn't continue to boot. Odd.

    When trying to install a Paravirtualized guest, I had to use the debootstrap method, but can't get it to boot up.

    xm create anya_zanet
    Using config file "/etc/xen/anya_zanet".
    Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'xc_dom_find_loader: no loader found\n')
    This is the /etc/xen/anya_zanet config:

    kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
    ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-"
    memory = 256
    name = "anya_zanet"
    vcpus = 1
    vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0' ]
    disk = [ 'phy:/dev/System/anya_zanet,hda1,w' ,  'phy:/dev/System/anya_zanet,hda2,w' ]
    root = "/dev/hda1 ro"
    on_poweroff = 'destroy'
    on_reboot   = 'restart'
    on_crash    = 'restart'
