I think Fedora itself currently has Xen 4.1.1 in F15 and F16.

Actually F16 PV domU fails to start with vfb (graphical console) on RHEL5 dom0,
the vfb never gets to fully initialized state.. so vncviewer won't work for the console.
F15 and earlier versions do work OK with pvfb on the same RHEL5 dom0.
I'll report to redhat bugzilla soon..

Yeah.. it could be the xen-kbdfront issue..
(it's missing from the F16 installer kernel/initrd).
