A few newbie questions:

 - the binary install works fine, except the xen0 kernel fails to detect
   my second CPU (Tyan S2460 mainboard). The debian 2.6.9-1-k7-smp
   kernel image detects the second CPU fine.

 - when I install Xen 2.0 from source and boot, my machine hangs at:
   (XEN) Scrubbing DOM0 RAM: ..done.
   Why? I'm using the same grub config:

title          Xen 2.0 / XenLinux 2.6.9
root           (hd2,0)
kernel         /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 console=vga
module         /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-xen0 root=/dev/sdb1 ro console=tty0
