Extract your ttylinux's kernel and initrd, place them somewhere under

Please note that the kernel need to have Xen support. Before 3.0, it's
not the same kernel you would use to boot on a baremetal machine.
How can I extract a kernel/initdr from the ttylinux?
That depends on your particular setup. In general terms, you need to mount under Dom0 the root (or /boot, if separated) partition of your DomU, copy the files to Dom0, than unmount the partition.

If you post your VM's .cfg file, it would be possible to give you a more specific hint.

Please note, it seems like the setup you are dealing with is not very common. Not a big deal, but the "standard" way is some bit different, and this one does not falls too well under "simplest example". Although, if you get it work, it will be a nice illustration of various aspects of Xen in the nutshell. Little pain, but great didactic value.
