problem installing a domU

I've create a new amd64/netbsd5-HEAD dom0; I'm now trying to go through
the official installation process to create a domU.  When I try to boot
an installation kernel, though, I get this:

NetBSD 5.0_STABLE (INSTALL_XEN3_DOMU) #2: Mon Aug 10 03:59:45 EDT 2009

no file system for md0 (dev 0x1100)
cannot mount root, error = 79

On a normal system, that error generally means I've forgotten to
populate /stand with modules.  I have no idea what it might mean here.
It's clearly an installation kernel (albeit home-compiled), since it
knows that root is md0a.  Suggestions?  Here are the non-comment lines
of the config file:

kernel = "/usr/pkg/etc/xen/INSTALL-netbsd5"

memory = 128

name = "handcar"

vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:42:e0:f3, bridge=bridge0', 'bridge=bridge1' ]

disk = [ 'file:/usr/vnd/handcar.vnd,0x301,w',
 'file:/usr/vnd/pkgsrc.vnd,0x302,r', 'file:/usr/vnd/src.vnd,0x303,r' ,
 'file:/usr/vnd/torrent.vnd,0x304,r' ]
disk = [ 'file:/usr/vnd/amd64cd.iso,0x305,r' ]

root = "xbd0a"

on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'
