I'm trying to set up a DomU with pypxeboot with the following:

bootloader= "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/pypxeboot"
bootloader_args= ['mac=11:22:33:00:01:0f']

When I do "xl create config", all I get is the usage() output from
pypxeboot :-(

Okay, it seems that pypxeboot is provided with the following list of

--output=/var/run/xen/bootloader.51.out --output-format=simple0
--output-directory=/var/run/xen/bootloader.51.d --verbose
mac=11:22:33:00:01:0f /dev/disk/by-id/dm-name-srv000271

of which "--output-format=simple0" and "--output-directory" are new to
pypxeboot. I added those and I am now making progress.

(is there anything newer/better than pypxeboot?)
