I compiled the Kernel according
All Packages are Installed, Kernel is compiled.
The Problem is, it just halts. It will not even show the first line of boot.
Only the Information is displayed like the debian  kernel displays it.
Here is the System Configuration:
two Harddisks (30Gig and 15 Gig) and a CDROM drive
AMD K6/II 460MB Ram. VIA Mainboard, no AGP, just a simple Matrox Millenium I PCI Card
The Partitions were created like this:
/dev/hda1 /boot
/dev/mapper/hd1-swap1 (the Linux swap1, 1Gig)
dev/mapper/hd1-boot (the root partition)
/dev/mapper/hd2-swap2 (the Linux swap2, 1Gig ==> 2Gig swap)
As you can see the two drives are mainly mounted via LVM.
The Debian Sarge Kernel 2.6.8 Starts without any Problems.
The New Kernel has been lighted by not needed Network drivers (all kind of 10/100/1000Mbit cards which where not installed), only the System Grafikcard driver (the one that is installed)
RAID Support of, LVM support is integrated.
it is a Xen Domain 0 Kernel, and it has been Conigurated as shown in the howto.
Here is the /boot/grub/menu.lst:

title XEN 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.10myxen0
kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=65536
root (hd0,0)
module /xen-linux-2.6.10myxen0 root=/dev/mapper/hd1-boot ro

title XEN 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.10myxen0
kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=65536
root (hd0,0)
module /xen-linux-2.6.10myxen0 root=/dev/mapper/hd1-boot ro

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-386
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386 root=/dev/mapper/hd1-boot ro
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.8-2-386

I added the two different boot attempts for grub. with and without boot. Both are not working.
It not even shows why.

I am quite frustrated that the kernel isn't starting. The xen install binary, which i tested first couldn't even bee executed.

I will try to boot the Xen System like the debian kernel is started, via initrd (by creating one).

I hope somebody can help me :(

with kind regardes
