[Xen-devel] Unknown boot option


I'm trying to satrtup xen-unstable with linux kernel-2.6.7
but seems I need little bit more luck.

 - got kernel pacnic in the boot process.
   It says
     > Kernel command line: /xen/vmlinuz-2.6.7-xen0 root=/dev/sda3 ro 
console=tty0 console=ttyS0
     > Unknown boot option `/xen/vmlinuz-2.6.7-xen0': ignoring

 I attatched full boot log as "xen-2.0-k267.log".

 - kernel 2.4.26 looks OK. Please refer attached file "xen-2.0_k2426_boot.log".
 - Xen DemoCD v1.2 works fine as well.

[I did]
 - use vanilla 2.4.26, 2.6.7 kernels
 - make world
 - make linux26
 to create all xen, -xen0, -xenU kernels

 - xen-unatable was pulled yesterday (7th Aug).
 - add boot option "ignorebiostables", "noacpi" but no help

Any advice to step forward would be very appreciated.
Thanks very much.

Best regards,
