Not neccessarily, if your fine with the fedora kernel, just copy
dom0's /lib/modules/`uname -r` into the domU image.

I assume Ubuntu would run on fedora kernel. If you want to keep your domU
distro "clean", then I would suggest to
        - copy domU's kernel and initrd at some place in dom0
        - keep it in domU and use pygrub

If you decide to use the recent ubuntu -xen kernel, disable the hwclock*
init scripts in domU and add

extra = 'xencons=tty'

to your domU cfg file, as the ubuntu kernel defaults to xvc0.
