  Per advice I received from some other Xen/Debian/Ubuntu users, I decided to 
use Debian
5/Lenny (very solid and stable) as my Dom0 host, and Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy 
Heron (more
features and fresher packages) as my new PV DomU guest.

  I am using an LVM volgroup (FooComVolG) to host the root and swap of this 
guest. So, I

 xen-create-image --hostname=foo.com --size=23.93Gb --swap=4Gb --ip=
--netmask= --gateway= --force --memory=4Gb --passwd 

  It failed with:

 We're trying to configure an installation of hardy in
  - but there is no hook directory for us to use.
  This means we don't know how to configure this installation.
  We'd expect the hook directory to be : /usr/lib/xen-tools/hardy.d

  Sure enough, there's no hardy in /usr/lib/xen-tools/

  So, is Hardy on Lenny impossible? Can I go find the proper hardy.d somewhere 
else and
just copy it over or will there be Bad Things caused by that?

  I will also be migrating over an existing Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn at some 
point. It's a
running physical server right now. I can copy the files over, but I'm not sure 
how to
first, kickstart it into a running HVM Xen machine and second, switch it over 
to PV (if
7.04 guests have the right packages available to run as PV). I can always try 
updating the
7.04 to 7.10/Gutsy and then 8.04 if needed. But any advice about the
kickstarting-from-just-files process is welcomed.
