DESCRIPTION

         xen-create-nfs is a simple script which allows you to easily create
        a single configuration file for a Xen guest which will mount its remote
        filesystem over an NFS root.

         It doesn't create any images to use for local storage, and it doesn't
        support more than the minimal number of options to completement the
        existing xen-create-image script, however it is hopefully useful.
