[Xen-users] How to create a domU on RedHat Enterprise AS 4.4?


I installed Xen 3.0.2 on RedHat Enterprise AS 4.4. Now I try to create domU from dom0. I copied the whole filesystem of a RedHat to the logic volume group (/dev/VG_Dom6_Linux/LogVol00) I created for domU. I then start the domU kernel, however I got the following errors:

*****************Message when booting domU kernel***************************

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem.  If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
   e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/VG_Dom6_Linux/LogVol00

Here is the content of my domU config file:
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xenU"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd-2.6-xen.img"
memory = 512
name = "domain1"
extra = "3"
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0' ]
dhcp = "dhcp"
disk = ['phy:/dev/VG_Dom6_Linux/LogVol00,sda1,w' ]
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"

Could anyone help me this? I got stuck for this issue for two days.
