I'm having a script that fires up one of the Xen instances on demand:

2 little questions:

a) my Xen instances use DHCP to get internet access, how can I know the IP-address of that Xen instance? I could login with the "xm console" and do: "ifconfig", but this is not a possibilty

b) when do you know your Xen instance is fully loaded? ( like when it's ready for SSH transfer .. )
