Hello Fajar,

as it was hard to find a XEN4/Squeeze-Tutorial I've tried my best by
reading several documentations and now (with your help) I'm see a little

I also changed hda1 respectively hda2 in /etc/xen/xen1.conf and fstab on
the domu into xvda1 and xvda2.

As I said domu is accessible but... I foudn several mount problems and
the last line before ash-shell starts is "/bin/sh: can't access tty; job
control turned off".

I'm looking forward hearing from you (if you still wish).
