Hi.  I am running Xen 3.0.3-1 on Debian Etch.  Does anyone have a sample config file for creating a windows DomU?  I have the ISO file from my windows CD.  I'm not using LVM

Here is what I use with Windows XP Pro and the CD I got with my Dell, under Debian Etch on an Intel Core 2 Duo with VT support:

kernel = '/usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/boot/hvmloader'
builder = 'hvm'
memory = '512'
name = 'winxp'
vif = ['type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0']
# the following is the 'setup' phase, with an ISO image I copied from the Windows CD. If you want to use the CD for installation then ignore it,
#disk = [ 'file:/home/xen/domains/winxppro/disk.img,ioemu:hda,w', 'file:/home/amos/Documents/WindowsXP-Pro-SP2.iso,ioemu:hdb:cdrom,r' ]
# the following is used after the setup, so windows can access the hardware cdrom
disk = [ 'file:/home/xen/domains/winxppro/disk.img,ioemu:hda,w', '/dev/cdrom,ioemu:hdb:cdrom,r' ]
boot='c' # change to 'd' to make it boot from the cd, then to 'c' to boot from hard disk
sdl=1 # this line allowed the console to open
soundhw='all' # allows sounds in Windows, but when the VM runs you can't have sound in Linux. Possibly something to do with device sharing through ALSA
