You could propably use CentOS 5.2 als a dom0. It is shipped with a kernel-xen package 2.6.18.x. It works fine for me but i haven't tried F10 so far since i'm acutally downloading the iso image of F10 which takes a long time when using a 1024kpb/s line, you know ;)

Combinations known to work:

kernel-xen-2.6.21 from Fedora 8
--- or ---
kernel-xen-2.6.18 from CentOS 5.2

Fedora 6
Fedora 7
Fedora 8
Fedora 9
CentOS 5.2

Dale, great stuff. This question is a little late for your release, but I know it will be coming up alot soon, so I hope you can add it to your docs:

Is it possible to run a Fedora 10 pv domU on a Fedora 8 dom0 ?
And if it is, what steps are necessary to be able to install the F10 domU with virt-install and manage it with xm/virsh/etc that differ from what is required to do the same for F7/8/9,etc domUs?

With the standard yum package: python-virtinst-0.300.2-4.fc8
one gets:
ValueError: Invalid URL location given: http://mirror.x.y/pub/fedora/linux/releases/10/Fedora/x86_64/os/images/xen/vmlinuz [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found

when trying to install a Fedora 10 domU due to the integration of the Xen kernel with the normal kernel and virt-install not knowing where to get the kernel. (AFAIK)

Also, as the December EOL for Fedora 8 gets closer, people will have more questions about their options for dom0s - maybe people could submit pros and cons for each option and it could be added to the wiki (maybe as a table/matrix) - so that there is one place to refer people to when the questions arise.
