On to another problem though: I was having trouble booting the domu's the
second time, Device 2049 (vbd) could not be connected, and I found a tip
about increasing the number of loop-devices, so I added "modprobe loop
max_devices=64" in /etc/init.d/xend and went on to the next problem:
The first domu starts like a charm, so does the next for a couple of
seconds before I get a kernel panic about something not syncing (I only
have a couple of seconds to read it before the blasted thing reboots)

I noticed that the 64 loop devices turns up in /dev/, not in /dev/loop/
(where there's still a 0) don't know if it's supposed to be that way

Does anyone have a clue about this, and if not can tell med the correct
way of increasing the number of loop-devices?
