Are you sure it is 2.0.6 that is actually booting - you have xen.gz as your image in both GRUB entries. (AFAIK 2.6.11 from the 2.0.6 distribution should work on 2.0.5 but...)

I'm trying to upgrade from 2.0.5 to 2.0.6 and it's not going well. If I boot off of the 2.6.10 KERNEL, everything works OK. If I boot off of the 2.6.11 KERNEL the system hangs after the message "scrubbing free RAM: ..........done."

I used make ARCH=xen oldconfig to migrate my .10 kernel configuration to .11

my grub configuration looks like:

# Which listing to boot as default. 0 is the first, 1 the second etc.
default 2
# How many seconds to wait before the default listing is booted.
timeout 10
# Nice, fat splash-image to spice things up :)
# Comment out if you don't have a graphics card installed

title=Gentoo linux-2.6.10-r1
# Partition where the kernel image (or operating system) is located
root (hd0,0)
kernel /linux-2.6.10-r1 root=/dev/sda3

title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.10
  kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 udev gentoo=nodevfs
  module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-xen0 root=/dev/sda3 ro console=tty0

title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.11
  kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 udev gentoo=nodevfs
  module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-xen0 root=/dev/sda3 ro console=tty0

suggestions?  Ideas?
