I'm fairly new to Xen (just started testing it today), but I'm having trouble getting the Xen Kernel to start. I use the Xen binary install, and added the following entry to Grub:

title Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6
       kernel /boot/xen-2.0.gz dom0_mem=131072
       module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/sda1 ro console=tty0 panic=5

Upon booting up, the kernel boots fine, but then freezes and displays:

Warning: unable to open an initial console

I've tried a few things including removing the console=tty0 line, but have been unable to get it past this point.

This is a brand new install of CentOS 4.1, and running on a Dell 2450, 512MB RAM, SCSI, and 3com network card.

Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.
