I've uploaded the vmlinuz, System.map and config files to

The output of the bk sccslog command is as follows:

  1.1076 04/07/13 18:24:48 kaf24@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx +1 -0
  Fairly major fixes to the network frontend driver.
  Much saner now.

I generally prefer to give out the MD5KEY names for the
revisions, since the changeset numbers can, and often do,
change whenever they feel like it. You can use the MD5KEY names
anywhere you'd use a changeset number anyway, after all.

That's right. there /is/ one other domain running, but it had
nothing to do with the transfer at all, being purely a dns cache
and server.

Yes. I allocated 48megs of physical memory to dom0, and added
an additional an extra 125megs of swap to it. The output of free
as we speak (still haven't rebooted the system) is:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:            44         41          2          0          1          8
-/+ buffers/cache:         32         12
Swap:          125          5        120
