I have setup Xen 3.2-1 under Debian Lenny. Debian traditionalle used an initrd style boot process, hence the dom0 and domU kernel both rely on an initrd to be there. Now I would like to build a kernel that doesn't require an initrd for booting (specifically to use boot Gentoo). What Kernel options do I need to enable/disable to be able to boot into my Gentoo image (acquired from failtime.org) without having to go through initrd?
