[Mageia-discuss] xen and grub

Trying to create a grub entry for zen.

I have the following at present.

title Xen 3.0 / XenLinux 2.6
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=512000
module /boot/vmlinuz-3.3.6-server-2.mga2 ro

xen boots, but vmlinuz panics with ( as far as I can see )
failure to mount unknown fs on 0,0

The fs is xfs, which shouldn't be the problem. Not sure what the 0,0 
refers to, xen or vmzinuz or ?.

This is a mg2 x64 install. I was kinda surprised that a grub entry was 
not created by installing xen.

Anyway, does anyone have any advice on how to setup grub for xen?

Programmers used to batch environments may find it hard to live without
giant listings; we would find it hard to use them.
