dont know if this is any use
to you but i found that booting in xen mode and running
in the linux-2.6.18-xen
seems to import the exiting
XEN config into the new one. Just hold down enter when it prompts for
different elements :)

You should be able to use the config for another kernel, as long as
the config is for the same base-level kernel (e.g. it may not work to use a
2.6.18 config to build a 2.6.20 kernel, and probably even worse the other way

As stated in a post yesterday, the best way to achieve this is to
wait for one of the distributors to do the hard work of figuring out how to
adopt the kernel patches from Xen into the next version of the kernel - because
that's what you'll have to do.
However, if you want to go with the
current FC6 Dom0 kernel, and use the new 3.1 tools and Xen Hypervisor, that
should work ok.
