Description of problem:

Xen failed to create xenU installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 yum-2.3.1-1   on  2.6.11-1.1219_FC4xen0 kernel

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install xen0
2.setup xen perf web site instructions http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/virtualization/
3. failed in the yum install section.

Actual Results:  [root@dhcp83-22 shak]# yum --installroot=/xen/perf1 -y groupinstall Base
