Hello, thanks Daniel for your  answer.

With the kernel I compiled I get the same results:
root@backupsid:~# xm create -c pau.conf
Using config file "/etc/xen/pau.conf".
Started domain pau, console on port 9605
************ REMOTE CONSOLE: CTRL-] TO QUIT ********
Linux version 2.6.11myxenu (root@backupsid) (gcc versión 3.3.5 (Debian
1:3.3.5-13)) #1 Thu Aug 11 22:44:39 CEST 2005
BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
 Xen: 0000000000000000 - 0000000012c00000 (usable)

And then stops at:
IP: routing cache hash table of 2048 buckets, 16Kbytes
TCP established hash table entries: 16384 (order: 5, 131072 bytes)
TCP bind hash table entries: 16384 (order: 4, 65536 bytes

xm list doesn't list the domain, just the domain-0, If I type
quickly 'xm list' just after the 'xm create' I can see the
domain while the kernel messages are shown but it dies

If I use the dom0 kernel I get no kernel output just:
root@backupsid:~# xm create -c pau.conf
Using config file "/etc/xen/pau.conf".
Started domain pau, console on port 9605
************ REMOTE CONSOLE: CTRL-] TO QUIT ********

I have used different kernels, the one you comment is 
the one distributed with the sources of xen, this shows
kernel messages but behaves exactly as the one I've compiled.

I know :-)

Yes, but I'm not the only one, and it fails in different

Anyway, some more info, I have compiled bridge support but I
get this error:
root@backupsid:~# brctl show
bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
xen-br0         8000.000000000000       no               can't get port
info: Function not implemented

looks like a kernel module not loaded or a feature not
compiled but I have bridge support:
root@backupsid:~# ifconfig xen-br0
