Maybe that's the reason that the vserver-xen-kernel did not work for me.
I did not have problems with the xen-kernel.

Did you try 2.6.18-6 ?

I don't have an /etc/issue.serial. What is the content?

My "cat /proc/cmdline" says:
root=/dev/md0 ro quiet console=tty0 console=ttyS1,19200n8r

I have:
serial --unit=1 --speed=19200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=10 serial console

I have no problems with grub, but I can try it without these lines.

Thanks for you help.
