[Fedora-xen] fc6: xennet module issue with kickstart


I found one more little issue to stumble over :)

I tried (among others) the following kernel:
 kernel-xen-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm and the initrd from a (freshly rsynced) images/xen/ directory.

When the domU is created it comes up properly, and automatically preloads the xenvbd module,
but not xennet. I extracted the initrd and found the xennet module there, but it seems not possible
to load it from the network driver dialog (it's not listed). I'm confused as I also tried an fc5 kernel + initrd, and also
a rhel5 beta kernel+initrd. I think the issue is somewhere with the initrd, but don't really found a hook to
change anything, maybe short of rebuilding the initrd using --preload xennet

If You're successfully installing FC6 domU's from within xen, please speak up!

the following are the relevant settings from the domU configfile
kernel = "/mnt/xendistro_temp//vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/mnt/xendistro_temp/initrd.img"
extra = "ks="
ip = ""
netmask = ""
gateway = ""
# single line :)
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/evms/ll-kickme_root,hda,w',
'phy:/dev/evms/ll-kickme_home,hdd,w' ]
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr1' ]
