I posted a similar question as well but with a slightly different view.

I bet you'll find that your build tree doesn't have an
images/xen/vmlinux or an images/xen/initrd.img (unless you've built
them). Then there's the problem that an FC4 tree doesn't (usually) have
a domU kernel either.

If they were there, such as with Rawhide, then it still fails to start
the install without any apparent clues in the log as far as I can see.
At least that's my experience.

Anyone willing to describe the process to build the boot kernel and init
ramdisk and a domU kernel for FC4?

Anyone know why the boot kernel and init ramdisk image in the Rawhide
tree doesn't seem to work from FC5?
