Well this is a physical location, and I got a little further using
tap:aio: instead of phy, which starts the DomU, but now I have to figure
out how to install the OS. Essentially, I now get this in the console of
the running vm:
backend at /local/domain/0/backend/tap/2/51712
What is the best method for installing the OS from this point? I know
this is a kernel list, so If I'm barking up the wrong tree, just tell me
to buzz off.
