    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. :)
