BTW if you want a Xen 3.1.0  RPM, you can take the xen-3.1.0-1.fc7.src.rpm and
on your FC6 host just rebuild it by running

   rpmbuild --rebuild --define 'dist .fc6' xen-3.1.0-1.fc7.src.rpm

And a short while later you'll have a nice binary RPM of Xen 3.1.0 capable
of being installed on FC6 -  assuming you've got the kernel & HV parts there

Doh, stupid readme. It is basically the standard python install procedure,
so run:

   python setup.py install
