I'm trying to get FreeBSD to run under Xen. I've compiled Xen 3.0.3
from sources. I first compiled it with a simple 'make world' and got
linux to work both as dom0 and as well as a domU. Now, I'm trying to
get FreeBSD. I followed the tutorial at:
http://www.yuanjue.net/xen/howto.html but get the follwing error when
booting FreeBSD:

Error: (22, 'Invalid argument')

From what I understand this is due to the FreeBSD kernel being
compiled with PAE while my Xen isn't. So I re-compiled Xen with
XEN_TARGET_X86_PAE=y but now my linux dom0 won't boot anymore...

So, what I'm looking for is either:
1) a way to build my dom0 kernel with PAE enabled; or
2) a way to run FreeBSD using a non-PAE Xen
