Hi Every1,

I am facing a problem while trying to use the vmdisk : say 3VMdisks
(FC6sml-s001.vmdk,  FC6sml-s002.vmdk,  FC6sml-s003.vmdk) to be mapped
to my /dev/sda1 so as to be used as XenU disk parition.  On doing some
googling, I come across that I need to convert vmdk into raw data
image and then use that raw data image for xenU.

But here, I am facing problem converting vmdk image into raw data
image using qemu-img:

                      qemu-img convert -f vmdk FC6sml-s001.vmdk -O

          but I am getting:
                           qemu-img: Could not open 'FC6sml-s001.vmdk'

Could any1 let me know what is the problem is this????

Also, if there is any other way to use vmware disk image for my XenU paritionn??
