Following the instructions for FC4 doesn't help me. I'm trying to load
the same machine as you using the instructions from
http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraXenQuickstart. If I do that It
loads  Xen 2.6. That is apparently the wrong one, it needs xen-3.0. If I
get that and the kernels that go with it, it won't boot at all. I
suppose there are dependency issues.

I'm trying to track them down but I feel lost and forlorn because I
suspect that something this monstrous would have shown up in the wiki or
the mailing list. I'm afraid it's some Dell thing. I also don't
understand the statement that FC4 has xen built in. I don't see it
anywhere and it looks like you have to get everything from FC5 to get it
up. Why won't xen2.0 work on FC4? Should I just go top FC3?
