I am installing Xen 3.0 on a Ubuntu system. I am having trouble making the GRUB boot with the Xen dom0 image I built. I am using the initramdisk created by commands:
# depmod
# mkinitramfs -o initrd-

Grub version: GNU GRUB  version 0.95
The title paragraphs from menu.lst - first for regular Ubuntu kernel and second for Xen.

title           Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.12-9-686
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-9-686 root=/dev/hda1 ro console=tty1 console=ttyS0,38400 quiet splash
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-9-686

title           Xen 3.0 / XenLinux 2.6
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/xen-3.0.0.gz console=vga
module          /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/hda1 ro console=tty1 console=ttyS0,38400 quiet splash
initrd          /boot/initrd-

When I boot Xen 3.0/XenLinux 2.6, I get the  following message:
 Booting 'Xen 3.0 / XenLinux 2.6'

root  (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel  /boot/xen-3.0.0.gz console=vga
   [Multiboot-elf, <0x100000:0x6b1ec:0x2be14>, shtab=0x197078, entry=0x100000]
module  /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/hda1 ro console=tty1 console=ttyS
0,38400 quiet splash
   [Multiboot-module @ 0x198000, 0x4c13cc bytes]
initrd  /boot/initrd-

Error 19: Linux kernel must be loaded before initrd

Press any key to continue...

I don't understand what is wrong with my grub entry for Xen. xen-3.0.0.gz is a multi-boot kernel. I built it from the Xen 3.0 source code.

I also don't understand the exact difference in giving the vmlinuz* image as a kernel as in first paragraph, versus giving it as a module as in Xen paragraph.

Can anyone tell me what can I try?
