PV-Grub & managing openSUSE 11.1 PV DomU (via VFB) at Xen-Unstable Dom0 with 2.6.29-rc3 pv_ops enabled kernel on Intel SATA(AHCI)

This posting is targeting install stubdom binaries at Xen-Unstable Dom0 with pv_ops enabled kernel and testing pv-grub and virtual frame buffer functionality in mentioned environment. Actually, stubdom install requires:-

# cd /usr/src/xen-unstable.hg/stubdom
# make
# make install

with package "Texinfo" previously installed via Synaptic Manager. Setup VNC at Dom0 exactly as on Ubuntu Intrepid Server with Ubuntu Desktop installed via "tasksel" to manage Dom0 remotely via Gnome Desktop interface
Setup Apache at Dom0.
# apt-get install apache2
# losetup /dev/loop0 /etc/xen/isos/suse.iso
# mkdir -p /var/www/suse
# mount -o loop /etc//xen/isos/suse.iso /var/www/suse
