[Xen-devel] Porting of Guest OS

I am trying to boot a guest OS (SuSE 2.6 kernel) on Xen. But, it is giving me boot errors.

The steps I followed:
1) Created a raw diskFile with ext3 filesystem
2) Copied /{root,etc,dev,var,usr,bin,sbin,lib} from my SuSE 2.6 installation on to the diskFile
3) Created a config file as:
Important parameters are as follows:
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.27-xenU"
disk = ['file:FullPathToTheDiskFile,sda1,w']
root = "/dev/sda1"
(other parameters skipped)

4) Booted-up the new Domain

It is giving some-errors like /lib/modules/2.6.9-xenU/modules.dep not found. And boots up in the

Can anyone tell me what exact changes do i need to make to the SuSE 2.6 kernel to be able to boot it as a new Domain?

I understand that the machine dependent code has to be changed with new code provided by Xen....but I could not find a place where it says........."These are the exacts steps you need to follow for porting of Guest OS in a Domain"

Thanks in advance!
