Thanks - I tried it with the ramdisk, didn't help.  Ramdisk loads, then
the vm hangs when it goes to switch to the "real" filesystem (because it
doesn't recognize it.)

This is probably why:  you're using FC5, not FC6.  FC6 does away with
separate dom0 and domU kernels.

Sorry to correct you, but xensource.com has a domU kernel for RHEL 3
(which runs 2.4)

I downloaded and used this kernel, and it works (solved my problem.)  I
would have rather done things the "Red Hat endorsed" way, but I'm just
happy I've got it running.

Thanks for  your replies
