i saw a number of mistakes i made...

1. you cannot specify "root = '' " (not even to make it empty) ==> you get the 
pvgrub shell
2. the config uses ramdisk = "" (not initrd)

after all this, with pvgrub it just doesn't want to recognize the iso as a 

i changed back to original setup, where i use the kernel/initrd from on the CD 
directly in the xl conf.

i noticed there that the SL6 CD doesn't recognize it as a CDROM and tried 
until it does.

now, it's recognized as CD, but doesn't find any files on it.

it keeps giving: "drive status is Invalid argument"

this is my current disk config:

disk = [ 
'tap2:aio:/etc/xen/templates/sl6.img,xvdb1,w', ]

(the order seems to be important, the CD must be the first one). no matter what 
vdev you specify, it will always try xvda or xvda1 (depending if you specify 
disk or partition)

both give the same response:

trying to mount CD device /dev/xvda on /mnt/stage2
drive status is Invalid argument

does anyone have another idea?
