Thanks, I will try that.

I just cannot believe that there is so much trouble with xen and one of the most common linux distributions (debian / ubuntu). The "official" lenny-xen-packages (3.2.1) are total crap (try to get a domu (bridged or via PCI pass thru) runnig as a router for more than 3 reboots) and the "source code howto" does not work properly either. I really don't know, how many days I have wasted trying to get this sh**t working. We are talking about two so called "stables" for God's sake!
