I think the priority now is to test xen and dom0 xenlinux that have
Keir's fix. We had a problem with booting yesterday.

I typically do:

1. "make kernels"
2. Kill it in 10 sec. when it starts building dom0 linux
3. cd linux-2.6.11-xen0
4. "ARCH=xen make -j<N> vmlinuz" and copy vmlinuz to the target machine
5. cd xen
6. "make" (or "make debug=y"), and copy xen.gz to the target machine
