I got access to the console server and power control, so I am in better
shape with these rh7.3 nodes...

We were actually trying it with just console=ttyS0 when this happened
(it was just rebooting immediately after dom0 seemed to load).  I took
your advice and recompiled everything at the same time (putting the dom0
custom config in install/boot) and that did it, I'm getting further (now
dealing with just a non xen config issue).

I have a question about your advice, why does it matter that they were
built at the same time?  Isn't it enough to be from the same build
environment, can't I do just "make linux24" over and over again?  Sorry
I'm so clueless...!
