[Xen-users] adding entry in Grub for xen


I am newbie to xen. 

I have downloaded linux 2.6.18 and xen 3.3.1 and compiled xen kernel.
I have added entry in grub file as shown below:
 title Xen 3.3 / XenLinux 2.6
        root (hd00,0))
        kernel /xen.gz
        module /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/sda3

While booting using above entry, it gives following error:
VFS: Cannot open a root device "sda3" or unknown-block (0,0)
please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (0,0)

I have tried to change sda3 to xvda also, but no luck. I see few places initrd (ramfs) entry in some of the examples. but there is no file created while i did build.

Any help is appreciated. May i know what i am missing while adding entry in grub file?
