Hello Justin,

I would like to use the instance storage (2x 840G disks) that comes
with the cluster compute instance type. This is again for an Ubuntu
11.04 hvm AMI.

The scratch space is not mounted on /mnt:
  root_at_master:/mnt/sgeadmin# df -h
  Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
  /dev/sda1 7.9G 4.0G 3.5G 54% /
  none 12G 144K 12G 1% /dev
  none 12G 0 12G 0% /dev/shm
  none 12G 60K 12G 1% /var/run
  none 12G 0 12G 0% /var/lock
  /dev/xvdz1 20G 618M 19G 4% /home

The block devices are indeed not available on my AMI:

  ec2-describe-images ami-ab5197c2 -K ~/.starcluster/pk-....pem -C
  IMAGE ami-ab5197c2 11-04-hvm available private x86_64 machine ebs hvm
  BLOCKDEVICEMAPPING /dev/sda1 snap-8f055aee 8

Nor are they on Alestic's public one:

  ec2-describe-images ami-1cad5275 -K ~/.starcluster/pk-....pem -C
  IMAGE ami-1cad5275 099720109477/hvm/ubuntu-images/ubuntu-natty-11.04-amd64-server-20110426 099720109477 available public x86_64 machine
  ebs hvm
  BLOCKDEVICEMAPPING /dev/sda1 snap-b1ad2dde 8

Would it be possible to add the local instance storage during the AMI
creation with ebsimage ?
