this kernel correctly boots on Debian Lenny Xen!

I prepared minimal root filesystem using mini.iso and qemu,
and then I used kernel extracted from your deb.

Console and networking works.

It is pretty unstable unfortunetly.

Transcript of how i prepared everything and what kernel problem i have in the attachment:

I tested many applications they seems to work, but sometimes i get panics.
Mostly releated to filesystem or locking.

from bigger applications exim4, mc, ssh client and server, apache2 seems to work

For example php5 doesn't work:
 pid 775 (apache2), uid 33: exited on signal 11
php5 directly from console works ok.

What is interesting that after install kernel image inside of domU and using only ssh
to loging into domU (and not xen console), it works much more stable.

I'm currentl building a kernel inside the Xen!
For now there is no error when compiling.
