The reason I asked about  the  'kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6'
entry is because my current grub.conf file has
kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
and when i look in /boot , there's indeed a file called
'xen.gz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6'.Because of that I didnt think it would be
correct to add
 kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-build-1 , since there's no corresponding file
called "vmlinuz-2.6.18-build-1" in /boot.

Meaning I should not add the 2 entries for /module ?

I do not have this.I didnt see anything in the build instruction that
mentioned the need to build with initrd.Hmmm?
