Unless someone backported the v2.08 bzImage format extensions (which I
don't think is the case) then you cannot boot a 2.6.18 bzImage under
Xen, that support relies on newer fields in the header. IIRC those
patches went into 2.6.27 upstream, although e.g. Debian backported them
to their 2.6.26 kernel.

For 2.6.18 I think you still need to use the old compressed-ELF style
