Nice! Thanks a lot for this work!

There are xen 4.1 RPMs at http://xenbits.xen.org/people/mayoung/EL6.xen/
which are simply the Fedora 15 package recompiled for RHEL6.

The dom0 kernel packages are at
http://xenbits.xen.org/people/mayoung/testing/ and are basically the
2.6.32-71.29.1.el6 kernel with the addition of xen specific patches from
Jeremy's xen/stable-2.6.32.x branch at the merge, and a few
code and configuration changes to get it to build. It isn't ABI
compatible with true RHEL6 kernels because of the changes. It should set
up grub correctly for a dom0 boot if the hypervisor is present (though I
suggest you check the grub.conf file until it is better tested).

Let me know if you see any problems.

I hope I get to test them soon. I'll let you know how it goes.
