    I'm not sure this is the good place for this post, so don't hesitate to move it to the appropriate section if necessary

    I'm trying to install a debian squeeze on a xenified CentOS.

    The installation of dom0 wen well and xm list returns correctly.

    for the domU, I have tried this:

    -> debootstrap vm.img (on a Debian system)
    -> copy this image vm.img on the CentOS
    -> mount it to configure the domU with mount -o loop /vm/vm.img /mnt/image
    -> chroot on it, (chroot /mnt/image) installation of linux-image
    -> Copy the initrd and vmlinuz from domU:/boot/ to CentOS:/boot/
    -> Put these paths to the vm.cfg configuration file

    These steps done, I have tried to actually create the domU
    xm create /etc/xen/vm.cfg -c

    And the dom0 reboots!!!!??

    I really don't know what to this about this.
    If I follow the same steps, but without installing the linux-image inside the domU, there is a domU-kernel-panic because the system can't find the appropriate filessytem for /

    Is there any way to achieve what I want, or it is totally impossible?
    Does anyone have any idea to help me fixing this?

    Thank you a lot for your help, and don't hesitate to ask for any complementary details I can provide.
