I don't know about whitebox, but it's unlikely someone provides a domU
kernel without any network drivers.

It's more likely that you missed to add the initrd to your vm config,
and/or forgot to copy the modules into the image you want to boot, in
case your kernel is not monolithic. I don't know what version of xen
you are using, and who built the xen and xen-linux-kernel packages

The jailtime image might expect to be booted with something other than
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5xenU"

grep netfront: /var/log/message*
in the guest to see if the xennet driver loaded...
