thanks for that.

I actually wanted to use the source code as I wanted to make small
changes to XEN and recompile it. If I use the RPM can I recompile the

I tried making changes to the grub.conf file. It has the following
contents, my paths are relative to /boot:

title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro
root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img
title XEN 3.1 /XenLinux 2.6
        kernel /xen-3.1.gz console=vga
        module /vmlinuz-2.6-xen root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 console=tty0

I made these entries using the documentation on XEN.  On booting that
kernel it displays some commands and then it displays kernel panic and
reboots the machine.

Is it because I dont have an initrd entry for it? There is no initrd
file corresponding to XEN in the boot directory.

thanks & regards.
