[Xen-users] paravirtualised gentoo on Fedora Core 7


I managed to set up paravirtualized Gentoo 2007.0 on my Fedora Core7 amd64 Dom0
(2.6.20-2936.fc7xen kernel). I use pygrub, to boot Gentoo with fedora kernel
and manually copied modules directory inside gentoo DomU image. Some problems
(boot and 100% cpu usage by nash-hotplug) resolved by upgrading gentoo
baselayout and making init.d script for killing nash on boot, plus added modules
xennet and xenblk in autoload. But it seems to me very dirty approach.

So the question is: do I always need to use exact fedora's Dom0
kernel for DomUs for paravirtualization? Or I can make own gentoo domU kernel,
like linux-2.6.20-xen-r5 and boot from it? Or it's completely wrong?
I tried to make gentoo linux-2.6.20-xen-r5 DomU kernel and boot from it, but
couldn't get vnc console up for that kernel, althought DomU was active and

Also if I update Dom0 kernel, do I need to do it for my paravirtualized DomU's
