Yes, I would appriciate any help with this.  I dont really have much
experience with compiling kernels or adding drivers to linux.  And I'm
not really sure where I can get these files.  Thanks.
What kind of drive is your root partition on? SCSI, IDE, SATA? And what controler is used?

When I try to boot xen, I get this error:

Hi Jacek,

I have also stumbled on this for some time. Here might be the solution: The xen0 kernel you use does not have the necessary device driver to access your root partition. In my case I had to recompile with support for a symbios logic SCSI controller.

The message above is deluting because the kernel tries to find an nfs server if the root file system is not accessible.

If you need help with finding and compiling the needed device driver into the kernel, just ask.
