Hi Ian, Mats,

Thought I'd chime in here because I got bitten using the make uninstall 

Within the Makefile uninstall section is this line:

     rm -rf $(D)/boot/*xen*

This will remove every file in your boot directory that contains the 
string "xen", so things like vixen or roxen will also match.  More 
relevant though is that it will also remove previous versions of xen. 
If you are no longer interested in them, or don't care that you may have

to rebuild them this is not a problem.  If it matters that you retain 
prior kernels you may want to comment out that line in the Makefile.  In

the current unstable that's somewhere around line #186.

Just a heads up ;)

Mike Wright :m)
