Well, I got to the point that I'm receiving errors when starting the domU -- something about requiring 4 arguments but only got three.  I tried the patches and they didn't work.  I think this is my fault, however, as I tried to upgrade to Xen 3.2, thinking I needed it, and then "downgraded" to the default CentOS libraries.  I don't remember the error message from before that adventure.

So, since I haven't built the machine out, I'm going to reinstall CentOS (hopefully) tonight and start again.

I do have a question, however.  CentOS 5.1 comes with what appears to be Xen 3.1 (major=3 and minor=1 in "xm info") but the capabilities are all listed as "3.0" something-or-another.  Do I need to install something different or should I be fine with the base CentOS 5.1 + Xen install?

Thanks for the help!  Hopefully I'll be closer in a day or two...
