So after comparing your blog and John Levon's
and trying it for opensolaris snv_122 from genunix.org, here's what I
come up with :

- you can use "xvda" instead of "0" for domU disk (in fact, xvda is
currently recommended)
- if you use 64bit kernel, location of x86.microroot has moved to
- no need for "-B console=ttya,livemode=text" anymore
- the live CD can't use virtual frame buffer, but by default it
creates a vnc server whose parameter (ip, port, password) can be
lookup from xenstore. So it's an alternative to starting vncserver

Some additional note, if you use updated Xen 3.4.1 and virt-install
0.6.4 from Gitco, virt-install works for opensolaris installation :D
