hi iain,

it is block device related. to install debian squeeze guest on xen 4.2
unstable I have to define the disk first as "sda".

disk            = [
cdrom,r' ]

then after the install manager wants to reboot I have to change the xen
config into "had".

disk            = [
cdrom,r' ]

on earlier installation, like xen 4.0.1, 2.6.32-5 amd64 the debian squeeze
guest's see the disk with fdisk -l as

- xvda1, xvdan-1, xvdan

in my 4.2 unstable environment the booting process just hangs. I posted
already several description to the xen-list.

I think it is a grub2 problem, but can't find the glue.

name            = 'server01'
kernel          = 'hvmloader'
builder         = 'hvm'
device_model    = 'qemu-dm'
maxmem          = 1024
memory          = 1024
vcpus           = 1
acpi            = 1
apic            = 1

uuid            = '06ed00fe-1001-4fc4-b5d8-11993ee4a8b9'

vif             = [ 'bridge=br0,mac=00:16:3e:1a:b3:4b' ]
#vfb            = [ 'type=vnc,vnclisten=,vncunused=0,vncdisplay=1' ]

disk            = [
cdrom,r' ]

boot            = 'dc'
usbdevice       = 'tablet'

sdl             = 0

stdvga          = 1
serial          = 'pty'

on_poweroff     = 'destroy'
on_reboot       = 'restart'
on_crash        = 'restart'

vnc             = 1
vnclisten       = ''
vncviewer       = 1

I haven't had the chance to do any testing with 4.2 yet unfortunately, only
got as far as trying 4.1.0 and 4.1.1 (both with Lib XL).

Is your issue networking related e.g. the squeeze VM can't get an IP or ping
the dom0?
