I'm trying to install Ubuntu server as a guest on a Fedora host domain (dom0).

I don't understand the functions of the guest's initrd and the guest's kernel well enough to know which kernel I should be using. Should I use the Fedora based domU kernel (which matches the dom0 one) or Ubuntu's kernel?

If I install using debootstrap would I need to swap out the kernel provided with an Ubuntu one which has been xenified?

Thanks for any help.
