As the subject states, I'm looking for pointers on porting paravirtualized RHEL guests from Xen back to real hardware.  It seems straight-forward enough - 'yum install kernel' to put a real kernel on the box.  Make sure the menu.lst entries are ok.  Install the grub boot blocks on the hard drive.  Etc. etc.
But how to get an initrd that closely matches the real hardware without *a lot* of trial and error whilst manually specifying the kernel modules that you think the real box will use?
