RE: [Fedora-xen] Prb manualy creating new VM.

	I thought about mentioning this possibility, but I wasn't sure on
the syntax.  I am also not sure whether it is Fedora specific or whether the
ability to use sda instead of xvda is XenSource specific (aside from in HVMs
where you need "real" devices).  Alain, in this case was
mapper/LaLvg0-MailDisk partitioned with fdisk, or was it just a regularly
formatted (i.e. ext3) lvm partition?  Also, from your provided line, it
looks like /dev/ isn't necessary after the phy: in Fedora Xen where it was
necessary in the XenSource version I last paravirtualized in.  Is it
accurate to assume that you copied that line from a working config on a
Fedora Xen machine?

I missed the start of this thread, but ... I had problems attaching disks
and resolved it by a line like:
	disk = [ 'phy:mapper/LaLvg0-MailDisk,xvda,w',
'phy:mapper/LaLvg0-MailHome,xvdb,w' ]

The important thing was the change from sda or sda1 to xvda.
After that things worked.
