Cannot boot into XEN Kernel


I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, I cannot boot into the XEN Kernel (XEN 3.0).

Everything loads, but it seems when it loads X i just get a blank black screen.

Distribution SuSE 10.0 fully patched, XEN kernel is up to date also.
In grub (menu.list) I have:

title Xen 3.0
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=384040
module /boot/vmlinuz-xen root=/dev/hda1 vga=792
module /boot/initrd-xen

I have a virtual machine with XEN and I can boot into the kernel ok.

Is it because I have a custom login screen? would that cause it?

Possibly. What happens when you append 3 and run just terminal apps?

BTW,just wondering what situation requires the use of XEN rather than creating a safe dummy user?

When I want to create a virtual machine.

Also, i don't get anything when I try to boot into XEN, just a black screen, i'll try to run 3 though.
