Hi, I seem to be having similar issues. I used the new Xen 3.0 installer
script to produce an FC3 dom0. It was great and all is up and running

[root@xen xen]# /usr/sbin/xm list
Name                              ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State  Time(s)
Domain-0                           0      681     1 r-----    42.6

I then moved to the http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart
Generated a file and formatted it as instructed for the guest
Mounted it and added the required file system entries
Downloaded the FC4 guest kernel - yum -y install kernel-xenU.i686
Amended my config file for the correct guest kernel
Tried to start my domain and the log said

ERROR: Will only load images built for Xen v3.0
ERROR: Actually saw:
ERROR: Error constructing guest OS
Traceback (most recent call last):
.py", line 77, in op_create
line 226, in domain_create

  File "/var/tmp/xen-3.0.0-2.1_fc4-root/usr/lib/python/xen/xend/image.py",
line 183, in buildDomain

>From the first line I assume that this is a version problem
Can I get an FC4 guest kernel from elsewhere (i.e. the Xen site) or do I
have to compile my own?
