    Good day to all.

    I'm trying to create a virtual machine using

    xen-create-image --install-source=tar \

    But my question is, what exactly should be in that tar? I tried tarting the entire debian squeeze iso folder structure but, xen command returned an error saying that the tar is not a full system image.

    Sould I tar the entire "/" of a currently running system? Or there is another method to acomplish a full system tar?

    Thank you very much in advanced and exuse my poor English.
