How would one go about compiling his own compatible kernel on the guest OS? What needs to be done to the kernel.
Ooff. It's like fixing your own brakes Not too painful if you've gotten some practice, but I don't recommend it as a first step, because a mistake can be nasty indeed.

You're probably much safer using one built by people comfortable with it, such as the CentOS/RHEL operating systems with Xen kernels built in, or the Debian Xen packages, and then reviewing their source packages to see what the packages and patches involved are. There are patches needed on top of the standard Linux or Solaris or BSD kernels.

There is some documentation in the Xen software tarballs, at Sourceforge.net and www.xensource.com.
