Here's fine. I think it might be time to split off a xen-users
when 2.0 comes out.

That's exactly what I'd do, and would expect it to work, though
haven't tested it.

What do you get if you do 'sfdisk -s /dev/vg_pool/lv_vm01_root' ?

The 'phy:' syntax is a legacy of 1.2

xend should print out a line something like the following,
providing the debug hasn't been quietened down too much:

 blkif_dev_create> 35 2049 w {'device': 774, 'type': 'Disk', 'start_sector': 
0L, 'nr_sectors': 37881206L}

Please can you post me this output and I'll take a look. I don't
really want to have to install lvm myself to debug this...
