Hello people!

This is a strange error and I am sure I am missing something really basic. I installed Xen 4.0.1 on Ubuntu 10.04, and only have command line access to my domain-0.

Every thing seems to be working okay. My "xm info" output is as follows:
root@XenOpen:/etc/xen# xm info

I tried to create PV domains using the following configuration file:
root@XenOpen:/etc/xen# more mylinux.cfg 
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-"
memory = 128
name = "MyLinux"
root = "/dev/hda1 ro"
disk = [ "file:/boot/initrd.img-,hda1,w" ]

The problem is that when I try to create new PV domains, I get a message saying that they have been created but they don't show up when I do a subsequent xm list:

root@XenOpen:/etc/xen# xm create mylinux.cfg 
Using config file "./mylinux.cfg".
Started domain MyLinux (id=11)
root@XenOpen:/etc/xen# xm list
Name                                        ID   Mem VCPUs      State   Time(s)
Domain-0                                     0   832     2     r-----    151.2
Could someone please throw some light on what in the world is going on...please!
