the ONLY change required to fix this bug is to add two files that you already have to the initrd for the installer (one file if you include xen-blkfront in the installer disk modules package), xen-netfront.ko for the network interface. the installer works completely except that someone forgot to include those two drivers because they didn't realize it would work completely.

same story for ubuntu 10.04, I was hoping I wouldn't have to go hit people over the head with it though.

These changes would need to be made in the kernel packaging. (I thought there was already a bug for this, but if there is then it hasn't been dealt with.)
