Look at the work Philip Hands has been doing in that area.. dunno where he posted it but he presented and gave a live demo about it at last years UKUUG Linux Conference in Swansea. http://www.ukuug.org/events/linux2005/programme/abstract-PHands-1.shtml

Hmm.. also just tumbled into http://blog.andrew.net.au/2006/05/07#xen1 really debianesque. --KrisBuytaert

My xen install with latest debian packages (thanks for them) went like this:

    $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6-xen-686 linux-image-2.6.16-1-xen-686 libc6-xen xen-hypervisor-3.0-i386 xen-utils-3.0
    $ sudo mkinitrd -o initrd.img-2.6.16-1-xen-686 2.6.16-1-xen-686

After than, I added following entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst:

    title Xen 3.0 Debian
    kernel /boot/xen-3.0-i386.gz dom0_mem=524290
    module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1-xen-686 root=/dev/hda1 ro console=tty0
    module /boot/initrd.img-2.6.16-1-xen-686

That's it. Easy and simple (after I figured out than initrd is really needed :-) -- DobricaPavlinusic

I'd done some work with Xen on debian a few months back, and I found http://www.debian-administration.org to be very helpful, specifically the articles under: http://www.debian-administration.org/tag/xen --DavidGrelli

At http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/396 Steve has now written exactly the guide I'd hoped for. --Joey
