It looks like grub isn't entirely happy with the following

title Xen 2.0 / Xenolinux 2.6.9-1.658_FC4
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /xen-2.6.9-2.gz dom0_mem=180000
        module /vmlinuz-debug root=/dev/hda2 ro debug 3 verbose xencons=off
        initrd /initrd-2.6.9-prep.img

It refuses to boot up, giving the error message:

        Error 19: Linux kernel must be loaded before initrd

I'm looking at the grub sources to figure out how to work
around this...

by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
