Exclamation The perfect Xen 3.0.3 Setup - minor problem I think.

When I try and boot the xen-kernel I get a lowmem out of memory error. Any
reason why? I have an AMD athlon-xp 32bit 1800+ processor with 2 gig of ram
and 2 120Gig HD's. I have 5GB of swap setup. The only way I was able to boot
the xen kernel was to remove the :

dom0_mem=64000line.Could you tell me what I could do next?Thank you,P.S. I
am running etch 4.0 debian.

Here is the complete error:

low bootmem alloc of 67108864 bytes failed
kernel panic not syncing: out of low memory

Again the way I can get it to boot is by removing the dom0_mem-64000 part of the xen.gz line.

dom0_mem=64000 tells your system to use only 64MB of your 2GB RAM. So removing it was the right option for you.
