Installing an ubuntu DomU using the native installer

So I wanted to install an ubuntu DomU in my Centos5 Dom0 which proved to be quite the task due to the lack of debootstrap. So an idea was to get the ubuntu install initrd and modify it so it would work with Xen so the installer would work like it would in a normal system. I succeded to an extent, with a few minor operations at the end of the install its reletively simple to install ubuntu using this system.

I’ll post my intructions and kernel/initrd later.
