I'm writing to you because i'm a little bit 'confused' on how things work out regarding xen source.
What's the point of having a separate repo for the modified 2.6.18 kernel since it's not possible (or at least for me, the non-kernel-hacker) to compile
it outside the xen source tree ?

Here's my experience :

cd /usr/usrc ; hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.1-testing.hg  ; cd xen-3.1-testing.hg
make -j2 linux-2.6-xen0-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig
exited without saving config.
hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg ; cd linux-2.6.18-xen.hg ; make mrproper ; cd ..
mv linux-2.6.18 old_linux-2.6.18
mv linux-2.6.18-xen.hg linux-2.6.18
make -j2 linux-2.6-xen0-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig
make -j2 linux-2.6-xen0-build
make -j2 linux-2.6-xen0-install

Finaly i'm getting a vmlinuz- in root / which i move back to /boot/ and add corresponding lines
to grub's menu.lst

Is it the 'right' way to do ? I must admit that i'm not a kernel-guru, just want to make sure i'm not doing something wrong

Thank you for your help, i'd appreciate.
