The Xen 3.0.4 guest RPMs are pre-built RPM packages for particular enterprise linux distributions. Unlike the standard 3.0.4 host RPMS, these do not include Xen itself or the tools, but instead just include a kernel which can be used within a guest ("domU").

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Update 8 (RHEL 3.8), we have provided a guest kernel based on the regular RHEL 3.8 2.4.21 kernel, but patched to enable it to run as a Xen guest. You should install this RPM (kernel-xenU-2.4.21*) within a guest partition. We have also included an RPM (kernel-xenU-unsupported-2.4.21*) which includes additional 'unsupported' modules for this kernel. Finally, we provide the source RPM (SRPM) in case you wish to examine the code or rebuild the package.

Please report problems on xen-devel mailing list and/or the bugzilla. Please avoid duplicate reports. Community products are not supported, and we will address bugs on a best effort basis only.
