NetBSD as dom0 and opensuse as domU


Is there anyone that uses NetBSD Xen as dom0 and also use linux (ie; openSuse) as domU?

I installed Xen, and it boots NetBSD amd64 4.99.XX as dom0 without problem - using NetBSD multiboot. There is also default openSuse grub installed. Once i run "xm create -c /usr/pkg/etc/xen/nbsd" i see opensuse grub's "menu.lst". Then, I select following entry:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux-Xen###
title openSUSE 11.0 - Xen
   root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-xen root=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_WDC_WD2500-_WD-WXE123456789-part1
   initrd /boot/initrd-xen

Then, it starts to boot OpenSuse and then hangs.

Dquot-cache hash table entries: 512 (order 0, 4096 bytes)

What /usr/pkg/etc/xen/nbsd contains is as

#disk = [ 'phy:/dev/wd0e,0x300,w' ] ---> This does not work
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/wd0e,0x300,w' ]
#root = "/dev/hda1 ro" ---> This does not work
root = "/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_WDC_WD2500-_WD-WXE123456789-part1"
memory = 128
name = "nbsd"
cpu = 1

while OpenSuse is on first primary partition of disk and has wd0e label in NetBSD.

If someone has advise i would appreciate.
Thank you in advance.
