Hi people

I am new to Xen and having some trouble getting it up and running. I am
trying to install it on a Dell Poweredge SC420 that has CentOS (RHEL3
clone) installed.

The error that I am getting when I first try to boot into the Xen
kernel, after having installed the binary and adding the necessary lines
to grub.conf is :


md: Autodetecting RAID arrays
md: autorun ...
md: ... autorun DONE.
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER

---machine waiting here---

The 'hardware' raid on the scsi card is not supported in linux so I have
set up the machine with software raid. Here are some more details that
might be useful ...

Here is the output of lspci for the scsi card that is in the machine ...

04:02.0 RAID bus controller: Adaptec ASC-39320(B) U320 w/HostRAID (rev
04:02.1 RAID bus controller: Adaptec ASC-39320(B) U320 w/HostRAID (rev

The driver for this card is the aic79xx.o and I see that it is compiled
into the Xen kernel.

Does anyone have any idea what is happening and how I might get Xen
