    Which kernel do you boot? The first one?
    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    ls -la /boot
    and
    Code:
    df -h
    ?

    /boot/xen.gz and /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 do not exist. That's why it doesn't work.

    Run
    Code:
    chown root:root /etc/init.d/xend*

    I don't think it's that easy. I think your whole Xen setup is messed up because you said you cannot run make world and compile new kernels.

    xen 3.0.1 not booting

    make world ran fine.
    just cannot find xen.gz in boot and the one in xen folder did not work
    so i thought a simple request for you to post it might br possible?

    I'm 100% sure this won't fix your problem. Anyway, I'm not in my office right now and don't have access to my Xen system...
