I downloaded and successfully installed xen 3.0 for FC4.....

(I have a good deal of kernel programming experience, so feel free to be verbose...)

So, I thought I'd throw a printk in a common routine.....say alloc_pages......

But after I compile with ARCH=xen and attempt to install the new guest kernel image,
I reboot, but nothing happens.

Is there a particular set of steps that I need to follow to recompile a guest kernel and
install it?

If you mean that your output doesn't appear, bear in mind that Xen stops outputting to the local console when domain0 starts (dom0 steals the vga adaptor). Xen will continue to output over the serial line, if you have configured that, or try 'xm dmesg' after starting xend.
