  Mercurial is selectable as an installation in
OpenSUSE 10.3 YAST.

  I have done the following:

hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-unstable.hg
hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg

make dist
sh ./install.sh

  I tried running the following to create the initrd but it failed:
Depending on your config, you may need to use 'mkinitrd' to create
an initial ram disk, just like a native system e.g.
    # depmod
    # mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod initrd-
  It states that it does not understand the "--". I've tried reading mkinitrd -h, but I cannot seem to figure out the
proper syntax for the mkinitrd command.

  Any help will be greatly appreciated.
