In [[Building a Debian or Ubuntu Xen Guest Root Filesystem using debootstrap]] we looked at manually building a Debian or Ubuntu based Xen guest domain (domU) by manually creating disk images and a configuration file and then using the ''debootstrap'' tool to populate the root filesystem with a base Linux installation. A much easier way to create a guest Xen system is to use a set of tools called ''Xen-Tools''. There purpose of this chapter, therefore, is to provide an overview of Xen-Tools and work step by step trough through the process of creating a bootbale Xen guest domain using these tools.
