Alright everyone I'm sending this to the e-mail list because that seems
to be the best way to spread and store the information. Eventually this
should make it into the public wiki or other documentation. 

Today is March 21st, 2008 and I am using a plain debian etch(stable)
net-install non 64-bit server. At this moment debian etch uses xen
3.0.3-1.  This walkthrough picks up right after you have finished the
debian install and are at the login screen. I will type all but the
first 2 commands from my management computer, which will be running
convirt 0.8.2. my comments will be on lines that start with #'s and
commands will start with >>'s. 

#Start of walkthrough
#On the Dom0 type these commands after logging in as root:
>>vim /etc/apt/sources.list
#you need to remove the cd-rom from the sources. press the down arrow
#3 times, press the letter i, enter a #, press Escape, enter a :,
# then enter the two letters wq, then press the enter key.
>>apt-get install openssh-server
#write down the ip address
#now from the management computer execute these commands:
#my Dom0 had an ip of 
>>scp ./convirt-0.8.2/config-scripts/xen-3.0/* [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/tmp
>>apt-get install linux-image-2.6.18-5-xen-686 libc6-xen
-s /usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/lib/python/xen/ /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen
>>ln -s /usr/lib/xen-3.0.3-1/ /usr/lib/xen
>>cd /tmp
#yes, I know it fails. Now you have to edit xend manually.
>>vim /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/xen/xend/server/
#on line number 95 you need to delete 'localhost', but leave the "". 
>>/etc/init.d/xend restart
>>apt-get install bridge-utils
#now you need to add xenbr0, to /etc/network/interfaces
>>vim /etc/network/interfaces
#add the following lines to the bottom of the file.
auto xenbr0
iface xenbr0 inet static
        bridge_ports eth0
#replace the address settings to match your network. 
>>ifup xenbr0
#Now, reboot the Dom0 and you can connect to it from Convirt. 
#I found that on Convirt I had to change on of the connect server
#settings from 8006 to 8005 to make it work.
#End of walkthrough

Feel free to reply to this if you have any questions. I plan to upgrade
all my Dom0's to lenny, and if there are any changes I'll be sure to
write up another walkthough.
