After succesfully installing xen(-3.0) for the first time from binaries ( under kubuntu-breezy without problems now I'm trying to get a virtual machine up and running. I followed this howto:
and I also read the mini-howto:
from the wiki.

After installation I debootstrapped a debian installation, and after that I would like to run it as virtual machine.
Unfortunately my vm "stays" at the point of starting crond.
After commenting the getty lines in the inittab, I don't have the rewpawn lines, but no more happens.

there is clearly something wrong with those instructions. I followed them as well and had problems creating the virtual images. Once I worked through the problems, I had an image that would not boot. xen complained about hot plug scripts not running.

I really need to automate the image construction process so we will have a repeatable process for producing these images.
