Notice,that SNV_98 may be installed in HVM DomU with no problems.
Attempt to install SNV_98 in stub domain fails immediately :-
Configuring /dev
ata_command: BSY too long!DRDY 0x1 CMD 0xe0 F 0x0 N 0x0 S 0x0 H 0x0 CL 0x0 CH 0x0
What means that hard drive cannot be detected by Nevada.

Same message gets generated during SNV_98 install on DELL 4550 (4500) based on  Intel board:-
* Support for an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in a mPGA478 socket with a 400/533 MHz system bus
* Support for an Intel® Celeron® processor in a mPGA478 socket with a 400 MHz system bus
* Intel® 845PE Chipset
* Two Parallel ATA IDE interfaces with UDMA 33, ATA-66/100 support

and IDE hard drive 80 GB Seagate Barracuda.

At the same time Fedora 8,9 can be installed in stub domain , HVM DomU and on DELLs 4550 (4500) and loads in all cases same driver "ata_piix".
I would expect any OS available for HVM DomU install,  available for stub domain install as well. If i am wrong about that,please, advise.
