Yeah I was thinking about using an initrd but was not sure how to go
about it considering the host machine is CentOS with a
2.4.21-20.0.1.ELsmp kernel and the Xen kernel is 2.6.9. Can I run the
mkinitrd command from Centos and have it build me an initrd suitable for
booting Xen?

Or is it the old chicken or the egg story where I need to boot into Xen
to create the initrd, but can't boot into Xen coz I don't have an
initrd :)



Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when
you do criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes!
