[Xen-devel] Domain0 booting on LVM device


I've been banging my head on this and can't seem to quite get it.

I've got 2 other Xen boxes running, so I know I'm not totally incompetent  :)

On my new server, I am experimenting with having Domain0 boot with the root
filesystem on an LVM device.  /boot is still a 50M EXT3 partition, and / (root)
should be found on /dev/mapper/rootvg-rootlv (rootlv in the disk group rootvg).

The default kernel boots OK.

I get booted up to the point where it can't find the / (root) and looks for a
floppy (none installed) or an NFS root.  Hitting the "any" key blips by an error
message that I can't read quick enough and reboots.

Has anyone gotten this to work yet?

Ideally, I'd like to get to the point where my Xen server boots off of a CD or
USB stick and has all of it's "disk" hosted off of an external server (NFS,
iSCSI, something).

My linux distro is Debian Sarge (testing).
