i think i have finally narrowed down my problem. i think its because the xen kernel does not compile with vesa driver support. is this right?? i did compile the kernel with vesa support but that one won't even start. it just reboot during startup. i have 2 questions

1. do i need to make an initrd for xen 3 to have vesa support
2. are the following steps ok to install a good copy of xen with vesa.

1. clean install ubuntu breezy.
2. install the required dev tools.
3 mkdir xen
4 cd xen
5 tar -xvpzj ../xen-3-testing.tar.gz
6 cp ../linux-2.6.12.tar.gz xen3 tsting
here's where i think the problems can start so please check this

7 make linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig (enable the options ) CC= gcc-3.4
8 make world CC=gcc-3.4
9 sudo make install CC=gcc-3.4
10 sudo ./install.sh
11 add grub entry
12 reboot


7 cp cp /boot/config-2.6.12-9-386 .config
 8 make linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=oldconfig (enable the options ) CC= gcc-3.4
 9 make world CC=gcc-3.4
 10 sudo make install CC=gcc-3.4
11  sudo ./install.sh
12  add grub entry
13  reboot
