Greg, thanks for your help.

That does provide a grub2 that includes the f14 system.  Unfortunately, 
it strips the xen parts of it.

Your advice did let me boot into the f14 system (now part of the f18 
boot) and from there I was able to, at boot time, edit the boot stanza 
to include xen as the kernel and the kernel and initramfs as modules. 
 From there the f14 xen system came back to life.

Still work to do but you got me on my way!
