Hrrrm.  I'm not sure that's the intended behaviour.

You really need to use Grub to boot Xen / XenLinux.  If you *really* want ot 
keep Lilo you might be able to use the mbootpack program in the unstable tree 
to package Xen and XenLinux into a lilo-bootable image (this program will 
work on -stable tree kernels too).
