Trying to install Fedora 13 VM on CentOS 5.5 with xen: Invalid kernel error


So I'm trying to install Fedora 13 VM on my CentOS 5.5 64 bit install following the below link. I used this same process to install a CentOS 5.5 VM just to test the process. Now when I try to follow it making changes for Fedora Im getting an error.

http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/InstallingCentOSDomU


config file:

Quote:
kernel = "/install/vm/fedora/vmlinuz"
ramdisk = "/install/vm/fedora/initrd.img"
name = "fedora13"
memory = "2048"
disk = [ 'tap:aio://vm/fedora13.img,xvda,w', ]
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0', ]
vcpus=1
I download the initrd.img and vmlinuz from:
http://fedora.zero42.at/linux/releas...6/os/isolinux/

error:
Quote:
xm create fedora13
Using config file "./fedora13".
Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'elf_xen_note_check: ERROR: Will only load images built for the generic loader or Linux images')
In the CentOS link I posted it said to use kernel from the xen directory. I have been unable to find a kernel for Fedora 13, does it exists? Or do I need to use one of the .img files from this link?

http://fedora.zero42.at/linux/releas...386/os/images/

thanks

update:

Ive tried to install using the virt-install command, everything goes good until it gets to the option to select the install location. I choose the first option which is to install it on a local disk and it hangs. I've left it work overnight and its still hanging at that point. Im using a Fedora 13 64bit ISO to install. I'll try downloading a i386 ISO to see if that works better.

I was able to finally get a Fedora 13 i386 install using the virt-manager command. Just need to figure out how to get the screen resolution higher than 640x480 on the VM.
