[Xen-users] Boot into dom0 "Failed to parse block device name"

I am trying to install the binary version of xen 3.1.

When I boot, after some console output, I get the following:

:: Loading Initramfs
scsi_mod: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.

My grub menu is:

Any help would be appreciated.
