My grub config:

Try adding console=tty0 to the line above

=silent showopts
    module (hd0,0)/initrd-xen

Definitely worth a try!

The new grub boot lines:

title XEN 9.3 /dev/system/root_9.3
    kernel (hd0,1)/i386/xen-2.0-testing.gz dom0_mem=512000
module (hd0,1)/i386/vmlinuz- root=/dev/system/root_9.3 selinux=0 splash=silent showopts console=tty0
    module (hd0,1)/i386/initrd-

No change in behaviour. Screen goes black after maybe 1/5 second, no
more than that, after selecting grub boot menu item. I am testing
with the Mitac laptop here, Xen and xenlinnux are RPM's from Kurt
Garloff's web page.

There is something printed before it all goes black it's just to
quick for the eye. Maybe I could capture the screen contents with
a darkened room and a camera :)
