I followed exactly the howto you mentioned - bu however I fail

here's my menu.lst and fstab

title   Xen 3.0.0 / XenLinux
root    (hd0,0)
kernel  /xen.gz dom0_mem=65536
module  /vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/mapper/vg00-root ro console=tty0

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system>     <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc                  /proc               proc    defaults                0     
/dev/mapper/vg00-root /                 ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0    
/dev/md0                  /boot               ext3    defaults                0 
/dev/mapper/vg00-data /data          ext3    defaults                0       2
/dev/mapper/vg00-swap none         swap   sw                       0       0
/dev/hdd              /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto     0       0

AFAIK there should not be any problem to boot from RAID1

You may not need to recompile the kernel, however a very good link is
here http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_xen_setup_debian_ubuntu

Another point, either referring a initrd image in the grub does cause
a problem, try to remove that from there. Hope that would correct the
I have the following given under the /boot/grub/menu.1st..

title Xen 3.0.0
    kernel /boot/xen-2.0.gz dom0_mem=25600 console=vga
    module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/hdb1 ro console=tty0

I had a entry like this (which i removed and the problem was solved)
    module /boot/initrd.img
