Right now, rawhide is using a later version of Xen than FC5 (FC5 is
using the 3.0.2 stable Xen release, whereas rawhide is tracking upstream
Xen development).  You can run an earlier guest on a later
hypervisor/dom0, but not the other way around; so you can't run a
rawhide guest on an FC5 xen0 kernel.

People have reported success running a rawhide kernel on FC5, and using
that to host a rawhide guest, though.
