We chose rather unsuitable names for the image files. In fact both Xen
and Xenolinux compile to image.gz within their respective trees,
although Xenolinux's image is renamed when it's installed in
install/boot. I can easily change that for the development trees so
I'll sort that out....

To build Xen, from within the xeno-clone directory you need to:
 cd xeno-1.0.bk
 make install

You should then find a Xen image.gz file in xeno-clone/install/boot. This
same file also resides at xeno-clone/xeno-1.0.bk/xen/image.gz.

xeno-xlone/xenolinux-2.4.22/arch/xeno/boot/image.gz is /not/ a Xen
image file; it's a Xenolinux image file (it's the same as
xeno-clone/install/boot/xenolinux.gz, in fact).

vmlinux is not directly bootable or usable -- ignore it.
