When you speak about guest, is it the physical computer whith os
acting as hypervisor or "The Virtual Machine Running" ?
Because grub is not used in "Virtual Machine", but maybe i'm wrong. So
i think you talk about the os w/ hypervisor. right ?

> * Edit menu.lst file and append console=ttyS0 console=tty0
I have to write this complete line ?
   -->    console=ttyS0 console=tty0
   --> # xenkopt=console=tty0

What does it mean ? I do not find anything about "console" option in
man menu.lst. Why i have to write this twice, whith different "tty"

> * In /etc/inittab add:

If i understant well, you attach a virtual console to ttyS0 (serial
line of the physical machine) . How to access this console ?

> In host:
> * In xen config file make sure you have serial="pty"
What does it mean too, I did not find anything about this in :  xm and
xmdomain.cfg manual.
