Installing using rpmstrap (http://hackers.progeny.com/~sam/rpmstrap/)
usually works well. You just need to mount the target volume (disk via
loopbask in your case) in e.g. domain 0. Once done, manually configure
/etc/fstab and copy in any xenU modules.

I guess you could avoid the network driver issue by doing a "hard disk
install" (assume that install option still exists) from an installation
CD exported as a second VBD - has anyone tried this?
