Thanks for the reply it was really informative.

If I use the create a config in /etc/xen and refer to say kernel
="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4xenU" where do I add extra flags
during bootup, i.e selinux=0. Do I add it to the end of this line

kernel ="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4xenU selinux=0" or do I need
to add to a grub.conf file in the domU?
