Hey chaps,

I've been happily building and running images for my domUs and the
following occoured to me:- how does one build a kernel *within* a
domU? How would a domU specify which kernel to use when it's
hard-coded (see 4 below)? In summary:-

1) xen testing, 3.0.2-2
2) Using a single kernel (/boot/{config-2.6.16-xen, xen-3.0.2-2.gz} )
for all domains
3) I'm using file-based images, (created by dd)
4) The kernel for each domU is specified within /etc/xen/foo
