grub-mkconfig doesn't pick up 20_linux_xen for some reason. looking into
it... thanks.

the distro (slackware) has a script for creating xen.gz by calling
mkinitrd. but then when i try to boot off the resulting xen.gz grub says
'wrong magic number'. can i have something like this:

multiboot /boot/vmlinuz
module  /boot/vmlinuz

i.e. can the hypervisor (which btw i understand Xen above to be the
hypervisor) and dom0 be the same kernel image?
