Thanks Todd.

Could you please elaborate a bit more about what is wrong with CDROM ? 

* I am ready to recreate/update initrd if required.
* Any specific changes in Xen ? What version of Xen would this work on ? What 
type of change was made ?
* What xen drivers are available for use with PV VMs ?

I searched the archive for cdrom parvirtualized, pv etc.. but no good hit.
