[Xen-devel] Re: Need help..

I have the partitions for separate / and /usr for domain-1
but no luck with domain-1 boot success. Domain-0 error about sharing
partitons across domians is gone though. So, I would like to know
how does exactly domain-1 boots(or will) based on the info in it's
/ partition or domain-0 / partiotion.

1. Does it use the /boot/grub info of either dom0 or dom1?
2. Does it use the /etc/fstab entries of dom0 or dom1?

Any other ideas involved that might significant here?
