I could use some help.
I made some modifications after reading the list messages in my e-mail box. I am now getting the following error:

[2005-12-29 20:05:12 xend] DEBUG (blkif:24) exception looking up device number for sda1: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/dev/sda1'

I also get an error on the screen that /dev/sda1 or /mnt/sda1does not exist and I need to properly specify the boot parameter.

I get this error when I attempt to use /dev/sda1 or /mnt/sda1; the LVM partition will mount successfully with a mount command.  I moved it to /mnt/sda1 because the os deletes /dev/sda1 on reboot and I have to recreate it with a mkdir command.  When I mount the /mnt/sda1 device and run "xm create -c vm01.cfg" I get an error that the domain cannot mount because the device is in use.
FSTAB on the vm01 file system

/mnt/sda1             / ext3             defaults 1 1

none                    /dev/pts          devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0

none                    /dev/shm        tmpfs defaults 0 0

none                    /proc proc      defaults 0 0

none                    /sys sysfs       defaults 0 0
