I've tried that guide as well..  still working on getting it to work.

1) What do you mean by crash? (my machine can take several hours to build 
image.... no doubt a bug, but not a "crash".) 

2) When starting the domU, mine took 6 hours to start up fully. (hwclock eating 
up all domU CPU time.)

3) Here is some advice I got from others on the list, but have not been able to 
get to the machine to try yet:


1. add the line:
(in DomU config file)

2. modify the domU's /etc/init.d/hwclockfirst.sh and
by either disabling them in a ugly way by:
chmod 000 /etc/init.d/hwclock*
or by disabling them nicer via adding
exit 0
to the 3rd or 4th line at the beginning of the scripts

2b. alternatively, set the independend_wallclock in /proc/...
(sorry for that, i missed the exact path, and don't have a system
