Fedora 10 installer has a bug, as a default it installs non-PAE kernel for
xen domU. You need to use a kickstart script (like this) to fix it:

The important lines being:


(Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 default kernels are compiled with pv_ops Xen domU
support enabled, so there's no need for separate kernel-xen with these distros).

Fedora 11 doesn't have that installer bug, so it installs right
out-of-the-box as Xen domU.

What's the error you get when you start the guest after installation? 
Please paste the "xm log" as text.

I don't have any problems with CentOS 5.3 dom0.
