An alpha release of this tool is now available from 

It should let you wrap up xen, xenolinux-0, and the command lines into a
bzImage file that can be loaded using a standard bootloader.  I've
tested it succesfully with xen+xenolinux images from the 2.0 release, on
a 128MB PII-400, loading the bzImage using GRUB and LILO.  Bug reports
from other configurations are very welcome. :)
