xen documentation states the configuration files for DomU are in "/etc/xen/vm". 
This Directory does not even exist on fedora 7 or CentOS 5.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 7 or CentOS
2. Install xen packages
3. Create at least on VM
5. Look in "/etc/xen", find directory "vm"
4. "vm" does not exist! Where are th configuration files?
Actual results:
There is no directory "vm" in "/etc/xen"

Expected results:
A documented directory where the DomU configuration files live.

Additional info:
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2007-09-24 19:50:29 EDT
There is no documented directory where VM config files exist. They are managed
privately by XenD and not exposed to the admin. The 'virsh dumpxml' command be
used to view a VM's configuration information, while the 'virsh define' command
can be used to save a new configuration. This is documented in the 'virsh' manpage.
