Oops. ;-) But they are compiled as modules anyway...

What hardware platform and compiler version are you using? The configuration
I sent you was Pentium 4 optimised. If you're trying to run in on a Pentium

anything else that should effect it though.

No. In fact dom0 doesn't even have to be running Linux.
