Hi all,

I'm trying to boot a dom0 with an image that I compiled from source
but it's failing to mount the root device.
I can boot Xen (the hipervisor) and it starts booting the dom0 just
fine. Something happens at the point where dom0 should mount the root
device. It shows me that I should append the right root device and the
kernel "panics".
When I'm issuing  rdev /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen, it's showing me not a
/dev/sdaX or /dev/hdaX, it's showing me a number like 0x6801.
I'm really passing the right root device to the kernel in the grub
command line and I'm not using an initrd.
