Good morning all.

I don't know if this is the right place to post, but I can't find any info 
about my problem on the net.

I Installed Xen 2.0.5 with bin installer into my Mandrake Box (10.2 coker). 
Following the documentation, I installed grub (Mandarke comes usually with 
Lilo) and I wrote those lines in menu.lst:

title Xen2610
kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 console=vga
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-xen0 root=/dev/hde1 ro console=tty0

But Xen kernel doesn't start. Every time I try to boot I get this error (I 
take a screenshot of my monitor with a digital camera, because my boot.log 
doesn't record anything when I boot with Xen kernel):

Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up
VFS: Unable to mount root FS via NFS, trying floppy
VFS: Insert root floppy and press enter.

After [enter] (I don't have any root floppy) I get:

VFS: Cannot open root device "hde1" or unknown-block(2,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)

This is a standard mandrake entry in grub:

title 2611-2
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-2mdk root=/dev/hde1 devfs=nomount acpi=ht 
splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd-2.6.11-2mdk.img

What's going wrong?
