Do you have xenfs mounted?
see if the following line comes up in the list if you type mount:
xenfs on /proc/xen type xenfs (rw)
If not, then you can try mounting it manually. If xenfs is compiled as
a module, you may have to modprobe it first. If it is not enabled in
kernel, then you have to rebuild your dom0 kernel, and enable it.
On my (Ubuntu Server 10.04.1 based) system, this gets mounted
by either udev or xend itself (it is not in fstab).
In my experience on this system, xend fails ususually due to one of the
1) Failure to mount xenfs (because it is not configured, or the module
2) Inconsistent installation of xentools (in wrong python directory or
mixed with older version).
