  I got a centos guest started on fc6 finally by creating the mkinitrd by hand. 
But the thing is centos seem to hang after the services are started properly 
and just before the login prompt. I also notice that 'udev' is failing at the 
beginning, which could be why mingetty hangs. I am guessing that udev is the 
service that creates the necessary ttys. So is there something I should do to 
get udev and the getty to work. 

  Thanks in advance.
