After you fix this, you will have a problem because you call your disks xvda in your disks= line, but you call it hda in your root= line. with the RHEL kernels, I beleive your xvda usage is correct- your root should be /dev/xvda1

Also note; you are using a RHEL5 kernel on RHEL4, which will likely cause some weirdness (but should basically work) After you get it going, you might want to try the same thing with the RHEL 4.5 xenU kernels (that are currently in beta)

XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/vbd/51713
XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/vbd/51714
XENBUS: Device with no driver: device/vif/0

this is the biggest problem; nothing will work until you get drivers for your vbd loaded. adding the ramdisk= line (assuming the ramdisk has the probper drivers, and your mkinitrd line looked correct) should fix this.
