I'm new to Xen and I'm trying to install Xen2.0 on VMWare Workstation 4.5. The host OS is Fedora Core 3. I downloaded the Xen source and did a 'make world' and 'make install' followed by 'mkinitrd' for the initial ram disk. I also disabled TLS.

I configured the grub.conf file and the rebooted the system.

I get a bunch of (XEN) messages at startup, probably meaning Xen is starting, then mounts the filesystem and starts INIT.

I get to the 'Welcome to Fedora..'
starting dev...    [OK]
starting hardware...

At this point the screen goes blank and VMWare pops a message:
"VMWare Workstation unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0)
ASSERT F(554): 1448 bugNr=3743

Any help would be most welcome.
