Hi guys,
I'm getting closer to get a swing of things in Xen.
Promising indeed! :)

Now  there's only one problem left to solve. It was actually this one that
kept me grounded on my first attempts with Xen. So...

I can't get the virtual CD drive to work with an ISO image. Everything
runs fine if I use an RL physical CD drive though.

This physical one works:
disk = [ 'tap:aio:/home/xen/dom/win6/xenwin.img,ioemu:hda,w', 'phy:/dev/cdrom,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

But this virtual one doesn't:
disk = [ 'tap:aio:/home/xen/dom/win6/xenwin.img,ioemu:hda,w', 'tap:aio:/home/xen/iso/win2k3-32/image.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

The ISO image is checked, working burning out an RL disk with Nero.
So what can be wrong?
