Looks good.

What I'm trying to do is get SuSE 9.2 to come up in it's own domain..
/dev/hda2 = root for FC-3
/dev/hdb2 = root for SuSE 9.2

My config file in /etc/xen (suse)
# cat suse
kernel ="/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.1148_FC4xenU"
memory = 64
name = "suse"
nics = 1
disk = ['phy:hdb2,hdb2,w']
root = "/dev/hdb2 ro"

Also looks good, although I doubt the FC4 kernel includes support for ReiserFS

Actually, it does - but as a module, not built-in. So he needs to build an initrd - see my previous message.

I don't think this is a filesystem support problem - it looks like it's not
getting that far.  However, SuSE 9.2 uses udev

So does Fedora Core 3, so its initrds should work.

so it seems likely you'll
need to boot the SuSE domain with an initrd.


 The stock one in your
SuSE /boot may do the trick

Not with this kernel it won't, because this is a Fedora xenU kernel.

(If that doesn't work, I think there's also a
Xen-specific one in the SuSE Xen rpms).

The only trouble with that is, the SuSE Xen rpms probably use a different
version of the Xen patch, which might be incompatible, as you point out.

Does anyone know whether FC4 is currently on the -stable, -testing or
-unstable version of Xen?
