i'm trying to install a fedora core 2 on a xenU and a kickstart installation. I'm using the initrd.img from the fedora pxe boot image: (http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/2/i386/os/images/pxeboot/)

this is my xen domain config file:
kernel  = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.3_FC2.xenU"
ramdisk = "/scratch/fc2-xen-install/initrd.img"
memory  = 128
name    = "fc4-install"
disk    = [ 'file:/scratch/fc2-xen-install/fc2-install.img,hda1,w' ]
extra = "ks=http://yum.mydomain.fr/install/fc2/ks-ws-fc2 ramdisk_size=65535"
vif = [ 'mac=FE:FD:00:00:00:02, bridge=xen-br0' ]
dhcp = "dhcp"

the system boot well but when anaconda start the system is already connected but anaconda can't find a suitable network driver so it complain :
" Unable to find any devices of the type
needed for this installation type.
Would you like to manually select your
driver or use a driver disk?"

I have read this thread http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2004-12/msg00198.html

Since fedora core 4 include Xen i  tried other solutions:
*  using initrd.img from  fc4 pxe image : unsuccessfull
* build anaconda from cvs : does not build because off missing files in CVS repository.

Is anyone has an idea or solution about this problem ?
