If you followed installer defaults, then /boot is ext4 (strike 3).
Your Xen version won't support ext4 in boot partition.

Its pretty easy to upgrade your Xen to 3.42 by pointing Yum to this repo:

(watch the arch).
Best bet is to add the new *.repo from gitco,upgrade Xen, then try the PV install again and use ext3 in the /boot partition.

You will still have trouble with pygrub choking on the grub2 *.cfg file.
An option is to get hold of pv-grub for your arch and use that at first boot.

Doh!  Thanks, that'd explain it.

Too many moving parts on this box; looks like I'll use Lenny instead.

Thanks for your help!

Forgive the self-reply, but is there a similar method to install a Lenny amd64 domU?  They've got an i386/i686 domU config file in their repository, but 32 bits leaves me feeling like I'm stuck in the past..
