I had this problem and another user confirmed the same behavior on his machine:

Haven't tried it with *2925.10* yet. Also, is there a way to get more verbose 
info about what calls are causing the "configuration file syntax error" errors?



  How large would you like the disk () to be (in gigabytes)? 4
  ERROR:  Must provide a file, not a directory for the disk
What would you like to use as the disk (path)? /xen/images/x6.img
  Would you like to enable graphics support? (yes or no) no
  What is the install location?
