I am using grub, and I know that I was not pointing to a good xen.gz.
So, I will get ahead and let you know if other problems happen.

Thanks for your help ;o)

Well, it needs to boot and mount the filesystem before it can write to it.
You're saying it does not even boot.

This is my first try too, and I haven't been successfull yet, so I'm not
sure that I should give advice, but, I don't understand what you mean by
it does not boot. What boot loader do you use (grub ?) ?

Once you tell it to boot, what happens, does it reboot right away and come
back to the boot loader, or do you get the "XEN: xxx" mesages, and then it
stops and reboot ?

Is your kernerl instruction pointing to a valid xen.gz ?
