Dear Ian;

I still have the following error of Xend after re-installing the rpm file of old Xen 3.0.1-4.

[root@localhost makoto]# /usr/sbin/xend start
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 111, in ?
 File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 92, in main
 File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 78, in start_consoled
   os.execvp('xenconsoled', ['xenconsoled'])
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/os.py", line 341, in execvp
   _execvpe(file, args)
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/os.py", line 379, in _execvpe
   func(fullname, *argrest)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

In addition, before the re-installation, I tried to boot the WinXP SP2 from CD-ROM, which crashed with the attached file message. Is Intel VT support default in the current version of Xen 3.0.1-4 or 3.0.2?

I installed the Xen 3.0.2 from the source file at
http://mirror.vmmatrix.net/Xen/ It was because the latest
version of yum list of Fedora core 5 is Xen 3.0.1-4 and I
could not get the rpm file form the Xensource. I read the
README, and make dist, and .did /install.sh. However, there
was no initrd-*xen0.img file installed into the /boot
directory where as I could be the vmlinuz-2.6.16-xen,
xen-3.0.gz, and xen-3.0,2.gz. I reused the
initrd-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5xen0.img file of Xen 3.0.1-4 of FC5,
but it failed.

You'll need to use mkinitrd to build an initrd for your distro.
