Netboot Installers and Paravirtualized mode

For PV VPS's, at the end of the install either you must have the file (hd0,0)/boot/grub/menu.lst present to boot with grub legacy (pvgrub), or you must have a grub2 config file and switch to booting with grub 2. For more information on grub 2 see here.
Here are some notes on making your system bootable in PV mode:
