Hi All,
       I am not able to boot Xen .

My "/boot/grub/menu.lst"  has this entry

title           Xen 3.3.2-rc5 / Debian GNU/Linux, kernel
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /boot/xen-3.3.2-rc5.gz
module          /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda1 ro console=tty0
module          /boot/initrd.img-

I am getting following error :
Booting 'Xen 3.3.2-rc5 / Debian GNU/Linux, Kernel'

root (hda0,0)
looks like a typo here you entered this by hand didn't you?!
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/xen-3.3.2-rc5.gz
grub found the file
module /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda1 ro console=tty0
   [Multiboot-module @ 0x276000,0x5419c0 bytes]
grub found the file
module /boot/initrd.img-

Error 15: File not found
grub found no such file /boot/initrd.img- on (hd0,0)...
typo in filename?

on grubs prompt a "ls (hd0,0)/boot" should show what grub can load and what not...

press any key to continue ...

Please Help me.

 I followed the following procedure from the
"Introduction to the Open Source Xen Hypervisor"
Zach Shepherd and Wenjin
taken from xen blog.

Install required packages
(e.g. apt-get install gawk libssl-dev libx11-dev gettext libncurses-dev
build-essential python-dev texlive-latex-base transfig tetex-extra
bcc bin86 pciutils-dev git-core curl texinfo libc6-dev mercurial
bridge-utils graphviz)
Download the latest Xen release
(e.g. hg clone http://xenbits.xen.org/xen-3.3-testing.hg)
Compile and Install
(e.g. make world; make install)
Create a ramdisk
(e.g depmod;mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img- )
Configure the bootloader
(e.g update-grub)

Following are the entries in relevant files =>
# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
# cat /boot/grub/device.map
