i think you'll need to add this line
        $(shell cp -a install/boot/*$(LINUX26_VER)* /boot/)
to makefile target "make install" to copy the kernel automatically.

i noticed that when 2.6-xenU is running the cpu-time in xm list is steadily 
rising, while the 2.4-xenU is nearly keeping the time when it's started and 
not used. but checkin' the 2.6 with top it shows idle = 100% like expected??? 
tell me if you need some logs or further information

one question to new io-world: 
using my avm fritz card (isdn-device) works really great in dom0 (gentoo). but 
i have problems using alsa with my onboard via-82xx in dom0 with kernel 
2.4-xen0. i'm getting an oops when trying modprobe. i will send u the log and 
displayed messages later, i want to try out how it works with an umodified 
2.4 kernel first. i decided that i have to contribute more to this really 
great project, since i noticed that the gentoo-xen0 is my only working linux 
system at the moment, it's really stable ;-) good work!!!

and one question to xensv
would it not be easier to build the xensv as a webmin-module? so u can use 
ssl, login, templates etc... from there. i know thats perl and i can't 
contribute too, but i think this is worth to think about, not?
