Hi JD and all the dev team,

First congratulation for your great work on Convirt 2.0 ! It really looks very nice and my first few steps got me really impressed.

I'm using mainly Debian Lenny currently as a Xen dom0 and for domU. In order to get Convirt 2.0 installed on debian, the main thing I had to do was to patch a few line the common/Debian_functions file (patch attached).

One more thing : on the page http://www.convirture.com/wiki/index.php?title=C2_ubuntu_installation, when you give instruction to install wget, you should add sudo (it is not installed by default on debian installation)
 apt-get install wget sudo

On the Xen dom0 side, one should create the following directory (or make a symlink to the directory where conf file are stored) in order to avoid warning when importing config file.

Moreover on an existing debian dom0, it is quite dangerous to use the bridge setup tool because it does not go the lenny way. On lenny when xen scripts create bridge, it remaps eth0 on peth0 and call the bridge eth0. When running setup script it wreaks havok the existing bridge and all the network configuration. Hopefully the --skip_setup_bridge is here to help (it should highlighted!).

Cheers and keep on the good work !
