   To tell the truth, I am really confused. I tried migration to local
host on two machines
after installing from scratch with with no success. (even not migrating
to local host).

I suspect it may be something silly which I do but I cannot
put my finger on it. Or maybe it is really a BUG ,since I did not get a
positive answer from anybody who succeeded with migration from a Xen
Unsable version from last week : Are you awake , Xen Users? :)

I want to verify that it is not a memory problem :
maybe I should allocate less mem to the domains than I do.

  So can you please tell me what is the memory allocation metrics you
use: I mean
1) what is the total RAM on the host which performs the migration
2) how much memory is allocated in the grub.conf (menu.lst) or lilo conf for
domain 0 (it is in the  dom0_mem paramer)
3) how much memory is allocated for your domU.

BTW: may I ask: did you try to migrate to a different machine ?
