NOTE: Please ignore this advice.

The setting in the "xend-config.sxp" is ignored. (Tried it and it doesn't work)
Setting â(dom0-min-mem 0)â is not a good idea, this allows the dom0 to loose 
ALL memory.

Again, wrong place to set this.

The following options in "grub.conf" works on my system:
title Xen 3.4.2 - Linux 2.6.29-r4
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=768M console=vga dom0_max_vcpus=1 dom0_vcpus_pin
module (hd0,0)/linux-2.6.29-xen-r4 root=/dev/md3 netloop.nloopbacks=32

Pinning dom0 to a single VCPU needs to be done with the XEN-part, the kernel 
can not do this.
