I am trying to create one, but without success yet.

I have an 2.6.29-rc3-tip kernel with dom0 support, it now can boot using
xen-3.3.gz, but immediatelly after boot my fonts are gone. I don't know what
to do without console. My cursor is sometimes moving, just I can't control
it (may be console and keyboard are not working). Can somebody help me, what
I am doing wrong? My last functional compiled kernel was 1.3.XX and it is
some years ago. :)

When trying to compile 2.6.29-rc3+xen, I need to turn off xen*frontentds
and xen*backend drivers have to be compiled into kernel, not as modules.
After this I have a functional kernel, but after booting with xen-3.3.gz, my
screen is blank.
