Hmm.  Works for me.  x86_64 box boots up fine (until the not-yet fixed
storage issues kick in, see xen-devel).  Old i386 laptop has an early
kernel crash (probably due to lack of an io-apic, the pv_ops kernel
reportly can't deal with that very well).  The bootup passes the point
where the dom0 domain builder parses the guest kernel though.  32bit
config attached.
