Here is my configuration:

# general
name    = "fedora";
memory  = 512;
cpu     = 3;

# install
#kernel = "/root/fedora6/vmlinuz"
#ramdisk        = "/root/fedora6/initrd.img"
#extra  = "vnc=1 method=http://eskarina.ber.suse.de/dist/net/Core6-x86_64/";

# booting
builder = "linux";
bootloader = "/usr/bin/pygrub";
#bootloader = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/domUloader.py"
#bootargs = "--entry

# virtual harddisk
disk = [ 'phy:sys/fedora,xvda,w' ];
root = "/dev/xvda1 ro";

# virtual network
vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:a1:c5:ac:0d' ];
dhcp = "dhcp";

kernel and ramdisk needed for installation are in images/xen of the
installation media.  pygrub isn't in the suse packages unfortunaly, you
can use domUloader instead (see commented lines), drawback is you have
to specify the exact kernel name in the config file ...
