[snip big chunk of mkinitrd problems which I'm not trying to help
resolve - I can just barely make it work when I do it myself... ;-)]

For Xen, you should not use initrd command in grub to load initrd - you
want to use module to load the initrd too. So the line would be
"module /initrd.img-xen-"

This will avoid the Error 19 problem - it obviously won't fix any
problems with creating your initrd... ;-)
