[one-users] ONE templates for Windows on XEN

Hi all.

I have been searching the net but cannot find the answer to my problem.

We have 2 VMWare images, one of Linux Ubuntu 9.0.4 and the other Windows 
XP and we are launching them from OpenNebula 1.4

We are planning to replace VMWare Server with Xen. I have found how to 
convert VMWare image to Xen image. What puzzles me is how the OpenNebula 
template should look like. Most notably, what should "OS" section contain.

Samples for Linux I have found on the net are not really helpful. I have 
found that for Ubuntu Linux I should have something like:


OS     = [
       kernel   = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-xen-amd64",
       initrd   = "/boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-4-xen-amd64",
       root     = "sda1" ]

Now, several things puzzle me.

1. are these paths paths to the kernel and initrd on the guest (DomU) or 
the host machine (Dom0)?
2. what should be the parameters for Windows XP, then?
3. all examples on Xen web site mention a "kernel" parameter in the VM 
config file, but it is pointing to "/usr/lib/xen/hvmloader"

At some point it seamed to me that the sample is referring to a 
para-virtualized Xen image (notice "xen" in kernel name).

Can someone help?
