This is simple enough.  Here is what I did.  Go to 
http://www.xensource.com/download/dl_304tarballs.html and download the flavor 
that you need.  Then untar that into some directory.

Last you just need to change the kernel parameter in the config to point to the 

I my case I moved the contents of dist/install to a folder called 
/xen/xen-3.0.4/ and I use that in all of my copy scripts.

Here is one of my DomU configurations using this method.
name           = "test10"
memory         = "96"
disk           = [ 
root           = "/dev/sda1 ro"
vif            = [ "mac=00:16:ff:ac:10:33" ]
kernel         = "/xen/xen-3.0.4-x64/boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen"
on_reboot      = "restart"
on_crash       = "restart"

I caught that part.  You might want to try to download the XS kernel and
use that in your DomU to see if it works for you.  As mentioned, this
solved some of my FC6 problems, it might also work for you. 

Isn't that what I have done here?  What specifically should I be downloading 
and how should it be loaded?  Sorry, pretty new to this and I think I am 
probably stuck on the terminology.
