I recently had a similar experience with the 2.0.6 install kit in an
Ubuntu Hoary (server install plus a few req'd packages) test setup. 
Had to create both .../domain and .../vnet by hand to get xend to run. 
And yeah, I know for sure I was running xend as root, as I would have
had trouble installing the kit or creating the directories if I hadn't
been.  :-/

I was working from a writeup done by some folks at Clarkson that I
found by way of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/XenVirtualMachine, so that's
where I appended my notes on the experience.  I had meant (still do,
too) to add relevant bits to the Xen wiki when I got a bit further
along, but I've been busy with other projects for a few days.

One Zone to rule them all, One Zone to find them,
One Zone to name them all and in the domain bind them,
In the Land of DotCom where the Spammers lie.
