I am attempting to install Xen3.0 following the WiKi howto's
for 'Xen 3.0.x on Debian Sarge' (Dom0) and
'Debian Sarge on Xen' (DomU):

  Dom0: http://mark.foster.cc/wiki/index.php/Xen_3.0.x_on_Debian_Sarge
  DomU: http://mark.foster.cc/wiki/index.php/Debian_Sarge_on_Xen

I've got Debian installed just fine and Domain0 up and running.

When I try to create my first DomainU domain - it fails with the following
error message:

xen1:~#  xm create vm01.cfg -c
Using config file "/etc/xen/vm01.cfg".
Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

I've seen another thread with a similiar problem - but I didn't
see a resolution to this problem.  Any ideas what's gone wrong?

Here's a snippet from the xend.log if it helps:

[2005-12-21 01:30:17 xend] DEBUG (DevController:133) Waiting for devices vif.
[2005-12-21 01:30:17 xend] DEBUG (DevController:139) Waiting for 0.

    return map(self.waitForDevice, self.deviceIDs())
  File "/usr/lib/python/xen/xend/server/DevController.py", line 145,
in waitForDevice
    raise VmError("Device %s (%s) could not be connected. "
VmError: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

I've attached both the xend.log and the xend.debug.log and the
vm01.cfg file as defined in the above WiKi.

Any insights into what's gone wrong would be appreciated.  If more
info is required - just let me know what will help diagnoset he problem.
