OpenSUSE 11.0: Xen Kernel is not listed in grub

I had an issues a few weeks ago when I had to install windows (for my RAID management software) on a seperate partition after using and existing openSUSE install. The issue was that I had to rewrite the menu.lst file for grub to get the dual boot back up and running.

My issue is that I no longer have my Xen Kernel's listed on there and I don't know how to get them back. I have have verified that the hypervisor and its tools are installed, but how can I get the Xen kernels listed and bootable by grub???

You can create an entry for it yourself if you know which kernel and initrd file to use. You can use YaST2 to clone your present entry and then edit the new one. Or do this in a text editor.

Example entry:
###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: xen###
title Xen -- openSUSE 11.0 -
    root (hd2,0)
    kernel /xen.gz
    module /vmlinuz- root=/dev/system/rootvol resume=/dev/sda2 splash=silent showopts vga=795
    module /initrd-
