I am facing the following problems while installing xen from its source.I have compiled linux- with the option ARCH=xen.I had been fiddling with the various configuration to boot up the kernel but its not working anyway.

When I compiled the kernel with the following option as built-in
[*] Root file system on NFS
I get the following error:
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

And when I compiled it without the above option, the kenel rebooted without showing any error.

This is what my entries in GRUB are :

title Xen 2.0
   root (hd0,1)
   kernel /xen-2.0.6.gz ro root=LABEL=/ console=tty0
   module /vmlinuz-
What should be the mandatory kernel configuration parameters for Xen to work?
Please suggest.
