I tried building xen-3.1 unmodified drivers against a fedora3 2.6.12 kernel

(xen-platform-pci.ko) the HVM guest promptly crashes and restarts without 
giving a chance to observe any error messages. Due to the extreme nature of the 
failure I'm assuming that the xen 3.1 unmodified drivers are not compatible 
with my Xen 3.0.3 Dom0 kernel. I might try the Fedora7 kernel for Dom0 as I 
believe its up to Xen 3.1 and see if I get any further. However it would still 
be great if I could the drivers to work on Xen 3.0.3.

I suspect you badly need to update your Dom0 kernel and Xen to use a 3.1 kernel on the DomU.

Hmm. Considering that Fedora Core 3 is *dead, dead, dead*, and the Fedora Legacy project is also dead, and the last gasps of FC3 are the walking, lurching, zombies wandering around saying "b-r-a-i-n-s.......", I think perhaps you should update your base OS. FC7 is quite shiny and new, but if you have limited hardware, you could stay back at FC4 for now.

I overstate, but I've had recent pain migrating things off of Fedora Core 3 that were slowly decaying in place, and the mirror sites that still carry it are fast going offline.
