Hi all,

I am trying to install Xen on my running Linux server. I followed the
steps of README.CD and copied image.gz and xenolinux.gz to /boot
directory. Then an entry in grub.conf was added as following:
title Xen / XenoLinux 2.4.22
        kernel /boot/image.gz dom0_mem=131072 ser_baud=115200 noht
        module /boot/xenolinux.gz root=/dev/sda4 ro console=tty0

After reboot, the system complained file can not be found. So I made the
change to
        kernel /image.gz dom0_mem=131072 ser_baud=115200 noht
        module /xenolinux.gz root=/dev/sda4 ro console=tty0

Initially it seemed ok.
  Booting 'Xen (2.4.22)'

kernel /image.gz dom0_mem=131072 ser_baud=115200 noht
   [Multiboot-elf, <0x100000:0xce3f0:0x1c430>, shtab=0x1eb258,
module /xenolinux.gz root=/dev/sda4 console=tty0
   [Multiboot-module @ 0x206000, 0x18b8cc bytes]

Then I can see many strange characters on the screen. Then the machine
rebooted. Any suggestions?
