Hmmm.  The kernel vmlinuz you sent me doesn't register as a valid gzip file, 
so maybe it is a bzImage.  

Anyhow, I get "invalid argument" from Linux too, which is what I'd expect.

By the way, there's work being done to modify the bzImage format so that it 
contains the information necessary for it to boot directly on Xen.  But it's 
of a tricky process.

I've not tried building a kernel.org kernel for Xen recently but I might be 
able to have a good at it and see what happens...


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
