Does kernel-xen0 still install the wrong entries into grub.conf?
I'm bk pulling directly from the -unstable branch of Xen, so I can't 
test this currently.

The correct entries are, for example:

title Xen
         root (hd0,1)
         kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=400000
         module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-xen0 ro root=/dev/hda2
         module /boot/initrd-2.6.10-xen0.img

However, older versions did install:

title Xen
         root (hd0,1)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-xen0 ro root=/dev/hda2
         initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-xen0.img

which is plain wrong.
