Thanx - I would have considered that if I had gotten ANY Xen boot msgs. 
However, I'm just getting the brief err msg in the Subject, when I can see it, 
and then a reboot. And booting with grub2 multiboot works fine, so I was 
hoping someone would notice something that could be tweaked in my xen.cfg.

It has in fact worked a handful of times, just mostly not. Unfortunately, I 
did not record what versions of Xen and the kernel it worked for, so I can't 
duplicate it. If I can get more info on the problem, it might be worth 
reporting to xen-devel.
