Hi, Rob.

I'm a confused newbie too but I think I can help with this one...

Glad to have some company!  :-)

This all looks fine to me, but there's no 'ramdisk' line, and I bet the
el5 kernel stores its block drivers in its ramdisk (or not; see below).
Alongside wherever you got your kernel, there should be a file named
something like "initrd-[same exact version string].img".  Copy it into
the same area where you're storing your Xen kernel, and add

That's what I find funny.  The VM images I create do not require an external kernal/initrd (except for installation).  Why would these images (from jailtime.org) that are built to be used by Xen require them?  I should just be able to use pygrub and go from there...
