I know everyone always ignores me whenever I say this, but users really
should be using the -xen kernel rather than -xen0/U. The latter two are
just to make build times quicker for developers. The -xen kernel has way
more drivers, though built as modules, so you'll need to make an initrd.


section 2.4.2 building from source

unless I'm missing something, the official docs say nothing about a -xen kernel (and modules). what are more appropriate instructions for building?
