I'm new to xen. (Before i've used ESX...)
On the ubuntu 8.04 host machine i've always created images with xen-create-image...
Unfortunately it cannot create lucid (10.04) images...

i've already tried to do it by foot, but the VM didn't startup... :/
vi /etc/xen/newlucid.cfg
dd if=/dev/zero of=disk,img bs=1024k seek=17k count=0
mkfs -t ext3 disk,img
dd if=/dev/zero of=swap.img bs=1024k seek=1024 count=0
mkswap swap.img
mount -o loop UbuntuXen.img /tmp/xenloop
debootstrap lucid /tmp/xenloop
umount /tmp/xenloop

Anyways, how can this be done easily? How do you setup your XEN VMs?
Is there a way to just install it with a iso-image (cdrom) as i would do it with VMware?

Thanks a lot in advance for any reply...

See you,
