Sorry about the premature sending.  Here is the complete question:

Download the FreeBSD domU kernel for Xen 3.0 and disk image from

*	kernel-current

*	mdroot-7.0.bz2

*	xmexample1.bsd

The link for kernel-current does not work.  Do you know where I can find
the kernel?  I tried to compile a kernel with PAE support, modify it
using the objcopy instructions given in the handbook, and use it, but I
get the error "xc-dom-compat-check: guest type xen-3.0-x86_32 not
supported by xen kernel".

It looks like I need a guest type xen-3.0-x86_32p.  I thought compiling
a kernel with PAE enabled would give me that, but I get the same error.

Any ideas?
