Still puzzled but with more info.
it seems when trying to use an NFS root the system never sends a
DHCPDISCOVER, which it does do when using the user space dhcp aafter
booting from "disk":
Sep 7 10:37:29 foghorn-leghorn dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from
aa:00:80:1e:02:89 via eth0
It starts right out with:
Sep 7 10:33:40 foghorn-leghorn dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 255.255.255.255

Well of course my server isn't giving out anything on that network....
Must be a config issue so here's the whole thing:
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-xen0"
memory = 3560
name = "il4"
vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:80:1e:2:89, bridge=xenbr0']
disk = [ 'file:/xen/disks/il4-root,sda1,w',
#root = "/dev/sda1 ro"
I must be missing something...
