In earlier chapters of this book we looked at populating the root filesystem of a Xen domU guest system by copying the root filesystem from the host operating system. While this is a workable approach it has the draw back that it provides little or no control over which packages get installed in the guest system. It is also possible that the operating system required to run in the guest domain is a different Linux distribution to that running on the host.
