Default Ipv6 on Xen

I require ipv6 capable hosts on Xen.
I have followed the HOWTO perfectly and have included the line specifying the ipv6 capabilities.
However when i create a host, the ipv6 address does not appear.
When i attempt a modprobe ipv6 i get
FATAL: Module ipv6 not found.

Is it possible to have ipv6 enabled on Xen?

I am using the 3.0.1 binary install and my kernel is 2.6.12.6-xenU. As i said i have followed the tutorial to the T and still no joy.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as googling has done nothing for me!

okay, i have taken the 3.0.2 version of Xen which comes with the 2.6.16 kernel and it has ipv6 support built into it. The Xen box which i am running has a lot of applications on it and several require ipv6 connectivity, how would i go about getting these 2.6.12 kernel's ipv6 enabled without losing the data i have? Is it possible to upgrade the kernel to the .16 version?

If Xen 3.0.2 comes with the 2.6.16 kernel, you need to compile a new 2.6.16 kernel.

Okay i kind of guessed that but is there no way to get the existing Xen setup of 3.0.1 which comes packaged with the .12 kernel to successfully run ipv6??
