Hi, Konrad,

Thank you for your reply.

I think it is hard to solve the problem of installing xen4.0 on fedora11_x86-32bit. Because everytime I install xen4.0 and reboot, my screen stopped at the below messages and did not to print anything.

(XEN) traps.c:2309:d0 Domain attempted WRMSR 000002ff from 00000000:00000c06
> to 00000000:00000000.

Now, I change my domain0 OS to fedora11_x86-64bit and I can successfully install the xen 4.0. However I have another problem. When I running the command "xend start", I got the error messages:

[root@localhost ~]# xend start
ERROR Internal error: Could not obtain handle on privileged command interface (2 = No such file or directory)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 36, in <module>

xen.lowlevel.xc.Error: (1, 'Internal error', 'Could not obtain handle on privileged command interface (2 = No such file or directory)')

I googled the problem and found it seems to be a bug, which refered here:

If I running another command "/etc/init.d/xend start", it can successfully start the xend service. But I can not create a PV DomU or HVM DomU. The error message as following.

Add 'console=hvc0 debug'

Pasi mentioned what to look at:
