It's a homegrown (of course :-) Intel mobo (forget what type). 
P4 2.4ghz. 128MB of ram.

No.  Domain0 has root on /dev/hda1 and swap on /dev/hda5.
I read the docs pretty carefully and I figured for initial tryout 
I was better off staying away from trying to share devices,

As for the initrd comment from Mark. The domU rpm from RH doesn't
provide one.  There is one provided by the dom0 rpm.   I'm sure I
can create one if necessary, I would have expected the RH rpm to do 
it. Do you specify the initrd in the "ramdisk=" config option?

Thanks for the speedy replies.
