Could someone please recommend a starting Linux distribution of least
resistance for deploying Xen 2.0.  I am not limited to any one
distribution.  I have encountered various issues (recorded below) with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and Fedora Core 2 distributions that are
impeding me from performing a comparison of Xen 2.0 to VMWare GSX


Issues encountered:

  Linux Distro: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
  Kernel: 2.4.21-15.EL
  Symptom: When booting Xen 2.0 binary distribution the following
  error message is received "Kernel panic : No init = found.  Try
  passing init=3D option to kernel". 


  Linux Distro: Fedora Core 2 (2.6.5-1.358smp)
  Built Xen 2.0 kernel: 2.6.9-xen0

  Symptom: When booting 2.6.9 based kernel built with the Xen 2.0
  source distribution the following error messages are repeatedly
  received.  The system boots but no modules are loaded (lsmod):

    Nov  9 14:38:28 sacramento modprobe: FATAL: Could not load
/lib/modules/2.6.9-xen0/modules.dep: No such file or directory
