The above command creates a 3Gb image file to which will contain the root filesystem. Having generated the image the next step is to create a filesystem on it. This is achieved by running the ''mkfs'' command. For example:
mkfs -t ext3 UbuntuXen.img
Below is the typical output from an ''mkfs'' execution. Note that because we are building a filesystem on an image file mkfes prompts us to verify that this is what we intended. When so prompted, simply enter '''y''' to proceed:
mke2fs 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
UbuntuXen.img is not a block special device.
