Hi Fajar, all,
Without much luck with CentOS, I tried Fedora 11.
This time, I could get Xen3.4.1 up and running with Fedora 11.
I don't know the problem involved in CentOS. Maybe someone
from the CentOS developer community should look into this.
The only difference I see between my setup and others is the
need for cciss RAID controller (HP smart array).
Am now facing issues with the guest VM Configuration file.
Will start a new email thread on that.
