Please can you add 'noreboot' to the xen (kernel) command line so
that you'll be able to see the last lines of debug
output. Alternatively, perhaps you could connect a serial console?

Just to make sure that what you have as the 'module' line is
actually a xen guest image, please can you do:

 "zcat xenolinux.gz | strings | head -1"

You should get the string "XenoGues".

How much memory has the machine got? You're configuring domain0
with 512MB, and Xen will have taken some for itself, so you
should have at least 576MB.

Thanks. Our current documentation is very poor. There's a lot of
good information that's been posted in the xen-devel mailing
list, but we need to pull it into a FAQ.

We're keen to see take-up of Xen by the GRID community...
