[Xen-devel] newbie xen question

All this time, I still haven't managed to make a single Xen domain
boot, other than domain0. I am just completely dumbfounded at the

I am starting the domain with the command line:

  xm create -c name=i1 kernel=/tmp/vmlinuz memory=64 disk=phy:/dev/hda6,hda1,w 
root=/dev/hda1 restart=never

And all I ever get as a result is:

  Xen virtual console successfully installed as tty
  Event-channel device installed.
  xen_blk: Initialising virtual block device driver
  xen_net: Initialising virtual ethernet driver.
  VFS: Cannot open root device "hda1" or unknown-block(3,1)
  Please append a correct "root=" boot option

My xmdefconfig is empty. I first thought it to be just a devfs
problem, since I used to use devfs=mount on the command line, but upon
closer inspection, it never had anything to do with it. With 2.6, hda
is looked up in sysfs, and Xen should support that.

My Xen things come from the 2.0.4-3 Debian packages and both dom0 and
domU kernels are 2.6.10 debian kernels compiled by me.
