I'm trying to create OpenSolaris (2008.11) domU on RedHat Linux dom0. I'm using a file backed VBD. I used the iso image to first launch and install OpenSolaris into the file VBD. Once that process is complete, I'm trying to run it using the config file below:

name    = 'opensolaris'
vcpus   = 1
memory  = "512"
vif     = ['bridge=br0']
ip = ""
netmask = ""
gateway = ""
disk    = [ 'file:/Application/xen/images/opensolaris_2008_11.disk,0,w' ]
kernel  = '/boot/osol/kernel.opensolaris'
ramdisk = '/boot/osol/ramdisk.opensolaris'
extra   = '/platform/i86xpv/kernel/unix -B zfs-bootfs=rpool/54,bootpath=/xpvd/xdf@0:a'

When I do that, I get an error message like this.

Unable to find number for device (0)

Can someone please help me debug this problem?
