    Cannot as in every kernel has to be reported to run under Xen.  Supposedly
the last kernel that can run both Dom0 and DomU is 2.6.18 but Ubuntu
apparently has it up to 2.6.20 so my information might be a tad out of date.
However when I first installed it on testing and it pulled in Xen from testing
and tried to boot Dom0 it failed completely, just hung there.  About 10
minutes of Googling and I found that it was a known issue in Debian that .24
can run DomU but not Dom0.


    After reading that report I pulled in .18 and it booted into Dom0 just fine.
