I intend to file a bug report sooner or later, but in the meantime I
decided to toy around with the kernel and the mfsroot from
5.3-release, and I did eventually come up with something suitable. By
a combination of stripping down both the DOMU kernel and the
sysinstall floppy, I managed to get the pair together in a size that
works and doesn't caush an immediate crash under Xen.  I've FTP
installed 10 different guests with it now :-)
