Could you please tell me why I have to do first "make world && make
install" before I can compile dom0 and domU kernels? (I read it on

You don't have to, but it's simpler when you're starting with xen and
are not familiar with it.

You can also immediately change ther KERNELS variable (I think since
3.0.4 you don't change, but have to add it, or issue it always on the
command line), and do make world then.

If you need to make kernel adjustments, you can do a make
prepare-kernels, first, and do all the other steps manually by issuing
mutliple commands.

Read "make help" - it's explained there quite well.
