This will be very intersting.

The easiest thing to do for testing is to put the CD in the

You really need to install other filesystems (on either real
partitions or virtual disks) for other domains, or export them
from domain 0 via local NFS.

I missed the final "22".

I'm still nervous about the NAT/firewall set up.

Seeing as you're only using local networking for this, you
shouldn't need xen_nat_enable at all -- just reboot and bring up
eth0:0 by hand.

After starting a new domain you should be able to ping and ssh
root@xxxxxxxxxxx if things are well.

It would be interesting to see if you receive any packets while
the domain is booting (console packets).
