Tvrtko is using hda6 as root and hda5 as swap so he'll need the
two physical grant lines in his script file.

I believe Tvrtko is using a file system based on the contents of
the CD. Assuming he untar'ed root.tar.gz and then copied the
contents of the CD into the usr partition, then setting
init=/linuxrc will indeed break things.

The domain may be exiting quickly because it can't find the
"init" command.  It should be sending stuff to xen_read_console
(and the serial line if you have one configured).

If you're not getting output from xen_read_console, check that
you have the eth0:0 alias, and that you've got no firewall rules
in domain 0 that block the ports used by the console packets.
