   Hi there,

/I've been working with the Xen binaries, but I need to support additional devices so I'm trying to build a custom XenLinux. I thought I would go the testing route and so I've downloaded two things.

First, I downloaded mercurial-0-6b.tar.gz from www.selenic.com. into /home/admin/src. After untarring it I went into the resulting directory mercurial-0-6b. Using the provided README gave a quick trouble-free installation. A simple hg confirmed it was working.

Second, I downloaded xen-2.0-testing.hg.gz from xen.sf.net. After untarring that I went into the resulting directory xen-2.0-testing.hg. Online I did a hg pull -u, and this seemed to modify and change some files successfully.

At this point I feel completely puzzled. Because of the work on the binaries I have a config file to hand - /boot/config-2.6.10-xen0, but I cannot see where to place it if I want to use it as the basis for a make operation. In the Xen Users' Manual, under the heading 2.3.3 Custom XenLinux Builds there are four lines:
   # cd linux-2.6.9-xen0
   # make ARCH=xen xconfig
   # cd ...
   # make
I would have thought the config file should go into the given linux-2.6.9-xen0, but I cannot find this in my existing setup. Just where do I put it?

In the previous section of the Users' Manual it says that the top-level Makefile will "download (if necessary) and unpack the Linux 2.6 source code". This suggests that if the xconfig is done that any necessary source code will be downloaded on the second make. Is that correct?
