Look at documentation (README, etc) found in xen source tarball. I
think something like

make linux-2.6-xen0-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig

is necessary for 2.6.18 kernel.

Note that there are other kernels available for dom0:
and with newer (2.6.3x) kernels the process is similar with the usual
kernel compile process: make menuconfig, make, and so on. You just
need to enable xen-related options during menuconfig process.

I did this and the config file has netloop built in (CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_LOOPBACK=y) but I cannot find the netloop.ko file in /lib/modules/
Is there anyway otherway I can verify that this option is indeed being taken into account?

If you compile with CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_LOOPBACK=y then you shouldn't find netloop.ko file at all as it is not build as a module.
