partitioning scheme for suse 10 sp2 XEN with virtual OES2 Netware servers on Raid 5

I have been trying to setup SUSE 10 SP2 XEN host server. I have a RAID 5 with 8gb ram and quad cpu. I have setup the partions like this but am having major trouble getting a virtual machine to load the os.

dev/sda 1.8 TB Adaptec Array One scsi array
dev/sda1 5 GB linux native /boot
dev/sda2 8 gb swap /swap
dev/sda 100 gb linux lvm evms lvm2/system
dev/system 100 gb EVMS/system
dev/system/swap 8 gb EVMS/swap
dev/system/syslnx 92 gb EVMS/syslnx
dev/sda4 1.6 TB extended

I can setup the xen but when it comes to installing a virtual machine, the install begins but then errors out with 'out of disk space.' I have the install .iso packages on my desktop like the instructions call for but it doesn't work. I have even created a partition from the extended partition with 300gb space and tried to use it for the virtual machine space, but I still get the same error.

3/18/09 I want to setup a server with xen to run two virtual oes2 sp 1 netware servers with nss volumes. I need to know how to partition the xen install to make way for the virtual machines. I guess I don't understand how the space for the virtual partition is allocated, although I have tried many differents setups to install the virtual machines. This is very frustrating, I am floundering and ready to try the free version of vmware soon. I wanted to make Xen work, but not sure that it is in the realm of possibilites for my setup. Any comment directing my footsteps would be greatly appreciated.

Crazy in Kansas!

Please HELP!!!!!!!

thanks. Faith
