Compiling Xen 3.0.2

I am trying to compile Xen 3.0.2 on an FC3 server (command line only). I am following the official instructions prodivded on in their documnentation and run make world.

I want to compile a custom version of the kernel so I followed their instructions after make world. However, I can only find one kernel in the install directory: linux-2.6.16-xen and when I try and configure the kernel I get the following error:

[root@delves-s linux-2.6.16-xen]# make ARCH=xen menuconfig
Makefile:439: /usr/local/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16-xen/arch/xen/Makefile: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/local/src/xen-3.0.2-2/linux-2.6.16-xen/arch/xen/Makefile'.  Stop.
Firstly the docs say the make world should build a xen0 and xenU kernel. It does not appear to do this. After make world my directory contains the following:
buildconfigs/  extras/                   patches/
ChangeLog*               pristine-linux-2.6.16/      linux-  README
COPYING        linux-2.6.16-xen/         ref-linux-2.6.16/
dist/          linux-2.6-xen-sparse/     tools/
docs/          Makefile                  xen/
Does anyone know where to go from here or why I am having the problems I am having?
