I'm trying to install xen-3.0.4 from source on a debian sarge (3.1r4) box with dual AMD-64 processors (with the new HVM support, although I don't think that's got anything to do with the problem). I installed only the packages necessary to compile xen and its kernel(gcc, make, bzip2, bridge-utils, etc).
In the source directory, I ran 'make world && make install'. I then ran
'mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd.img-'.
Finally, I added these lines to /boot/grub/menu.1st:

title           xen 3.0.4 / linux
root            (hd0,0)
kernel          /xen-3.0.4-1.gz
module /vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda2 ro console=ttyS1,115200
module          /initrd.img-

When I try to boot, though, I get as far as the xen kernel trying to load, and then grub spits this out, and the machine reboots:

root  (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel  /xen-3.0.4-1.gz
[Multiboot-elf, <0x100000:0x9a878:0x5a788>, shtab=0x1f5078, entry=0x100000] module /vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda2 ro console=ttyS1,115200 noreboot
   [Multiboot-module @ 0x1f6000, 0x52afa0 bytes]
module  /initrd.img-
   [Multiboot-module @ 0x721000, 0x4b6000 bytes]

Is there anything I'm missing? Anything I can do to help debug the problem?
