I downloaded XEN 3.1 source code on a fedora 6 machine.
I did

It did not give me an error then when I restarted the machine the Grub
did not have 2 options. It had only one option that was the kernel.
On loading the OS, when i gave

Right. The source code does not have the smarts to run "grubby" and set up the kernel. This is what you get for using source code, and not an RPM. Go ahead and take a look at the SRPM and the .spec file to see exactly how it uses grubby, and reset your default kernel, and reboot.
# xend
it gives the following errors:

Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong and how I can correct this?
Yes, upgrade to Fedora Release 7, and use the kernek-xen RPM if you can.
