    I have followed the guide to creating the perfect
    Xen 3.0.3 install on Debian Sarge. I have managed to get a Dom0 to boot
    (this was a bit of an effort as Yaird didn't like my RAID setup and
    initramfs doesn't want to install from backports! In the end I upgraded
    the machine to unstable, build an initramfs, copied the initramfs off the
    machine and reinstalled Sarge! It was messy but it worked!) however I
    cannot boot a DomU. It complains about vif0 and says that Hotpluging
    support is not working. I have found a great many references to this on
    google but noone of them seem to solve my problem. Most seem to relate to
    a problem with udev. I am assuming the howto doesn't use udev? Does anyone
    have any ideas what is causing the hotplugging problems? I have searched
    and searched but I can't figure it out.

    What are the exact error messages?

    The tutorial uses the Xen 3.0.3 kernel (, if I remember correctly) which uses udev, so that should not be a problem.
