Aha.  Um.

Maybe...more likely I just got lost and put the wrong file there.
I just re-copied, based on what I wrote below.

Please take another quick look:

After I do a "xeno-clone" or similar, where is the actual
bootable image file located?

I thought the bootable image is here (which is what I just re-copied
to http://peabody.arsc.edu/xen/boot/xenimage.gz):

and the xenolinux file is:

So if this isn't right, where the heck is the kernel image???

I already tried to boot from:
        xeno-unstable.bk/xeno-clone/xenolinux-2.4.22/vmlinux (or vmlinux.gz),
but from the "make bzImage" it seems that the image.gz is simply the
vmlinux with the multiboot bytes prepended.  Neither will work
via the "grub> kernel /FILENAME" command

I admit to being confused!  Thanks for further guidance on this...
