    1.15 +The ramdisk/bin/create_disk_image script, which builds the full virt
    1.16 +disk.img, requires Lilo 22.7+ to be installed on the system. Lilo is 
    1.17 +used to install the bootloader on the disk.img.
    1.18 +
    1.19 +If HVM / VMX support is enabled, the ramdisk/bin/create_disk_image script
    1.20 +will be run to create a full virt disk.img in the ramdisk directory. The
    1.21 +script, by default, will look in /boot for the first non-Xen kernel it
    1.22 +runs across. If you wish to use a different kernel or the script fails
    1.23 +to find a kernel, please run the script manually to make a disk.img 
    1.24 +using the -k option. Xm-test will look for disk.img in the ramdisk
    1.25 +directory when run by default.
