I strictly followed this howto (http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/423), to install xen on Sarge.

the only unusual thing i encountered was this:

debian:/boot# mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.16-2-xen-k7 2.6.16-2-xen-k7
   mdadm: /dev/hda1 does not appear to be an md device

...and that i had to alter /dev/md0 to /dev/hda1 in this line (menu.lst):

module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-2-xen-686 root=/dev/md0 ro

...When I boot into xen now, i see kernel messages, then some errors and a mem-dump-- then screen goes black and the machine reboots. I don't know how th read those Errors (toooo fast).

Any Ideas what is going wrong here??
