Thank you for the review.
Here is the updated one. I also found one more typo with a spell checker.

+       Recipe for getting/building/running Xen/ia64 with pv_ops
+       --------------------------------------------------------
+
+This recipe describes how to get xen-ia64 source and build it,
+and run domU with pv_ops.
+
+============
+Requirements
+============
+
+  - python
+  - mercurial
+    it (aka "hg") is an open-source source code
+    management software. See the below.
+    http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/
+  - git
+  - bridge-utils
+
+=================================
+Getting and Building Xen and Dom0
+=================================
+
+  My environment is;
+    Machine  : Tiger4
+    Domain0 OS  : RHEL5
+    DomainU OS  : RHEL5
+
+ 1. Download source
+    # hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/ext/ia64/xen-unstable.hg
+    # cd xen-unstable.hg
+    # hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/ext/ia64/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg
+
+ 2. # make world
+
+ 3. # make install-tools
+
+ 4. copy kernels and xen
+    # cp xen/xen.gz /boot/efi/efi/redhat/
+    # cp build-linux-2.6.18-xen_ia64/vmlinux.gz \
+      /boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6.18.8-xen
+
+ 5. make initrd for Dom0/DomU
+    # make -C linux-2.6.18-xen.hg ARCH=ia64 modules_install \
+      O=$(/bin/pwd)/build-linux-2.6.18-xen_ia64
+    # mkinitrd -f /boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6.18.8-xen.img \
+      2.6.18.8-xen --builtin mptspi --builtin mptbase \
+      --builtin mptscsih --builtin uhci-hcd --builtin ohci-hcd \
+      --builtin ehci-hcd
+
+================================
+Making a disk image for guest OS
+================================
+
+ 1. make file
+    # dd if=/dev/zero of=/root/rhel5.img bs=1M seek=4096 count=0
+    # mke2fs -F -j /root/rhel5.img
+    # mount -o loop /root/rhel5.img /mnt
+    # cp -ax /{dev,var,etc,usr,bin,sbin,lib} /mnt
+    # mkdir /mnt/{root,proc,sys,home,tmp}
+
+    Note: You may miss some device files. If so, please create them
+    with mknod. Or you can use tar instead of cp.
+
+ 2. modify DomU's fstab
+    # vi /mnt/etc/fstab
+       /dev/xvda1  /            ext3    defaults        1 1
+       none        /dev/pts     devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
+       none        /dev/shm     tmpfs   defaults        0 0
+       none        /proc        proc    defaults        0 0
+       none        /sys         sysfs   defaults        0 0
+
+ 3. modify inittab
+    set runlevel to 3 to avoid X trying to start
+    # vi /mnt/etc/inittab
+       id:3:initdefault:
+    Start a getty on the hvc0 console
+       X0:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty hvc0
+    tty1-6 mingetty can be commented out
+
+ 4. add hvc0 into /etc/securetty
+    # vi /mnt/etc/securetty (add hvc0)
+
+ 5. umount
+    # umount /mnt
+
+FYI, virt-manager can also make a disk image for guest OS.
+It's GUI tools and easy to make it.
+
+==================
+Boot Xen & Domain0
+==================
+
+ 1. replace elilo
+    elilo of RHEL5 can boot Xen and Dom0.
+    If you use old elilo (e.g RHEL4), please download from the below
+    http://elilo.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/blosxom
+    and copy into /boot/efi/efi/redhat/
+    # cp elilo-3.6-ia64.efi /boot/efi/efi/redhat/elilo.efi
+
+ 2. modify elilo.conf (like the below)
+    # vi /boot/efi/efi/redhat/elilo.conf
+     prompt
+     timeout=20
+     default=xen
+     relocatable
+
+     image=vmlinuz-2.6.18.8-xen
+             label=xen
+             vmm=xen.gz
+             initrd=initrd-2.6.18.8-xen.img
+             read-only
+             append=" -- rhgb root=/dev/sda2"
+
+The append options before "--" are for xen hypervisor,
+the options after "--" are for dom0.
+
+FYI, your machine may need console options like
+"com1=19200,8n1 console=vga,com1". For example,
+append="com1=19200,8n1 console=vga,com1 -- rhgb console=tty0 \
+console=ttyS0 root=/dev/sda2"
+
+=====================================
+Getting and Building domU with pv_ops
+=====================================
+
+ 1. get pv_ops tree
+    # git clone 
http://people.valinux.co.jp/~yamahata/xen-ia64/linux-2.6-xen-ia64.git/
+
+ 2. git branch (if necessary)
+    # cd linux-2.6-xen-ia64/
+    # git checkout -b your_branch origin/xen-ia64-domu-minimal-2008may19
+    (Note: The current branch is xen-ia64-domu-minimal-2008may19.
+    But you would find the new branch. You can see with
+    "git branch -r" to get the branch lists.
+    
http://people.valinux.co.jp/~yamahata/xen-ia64/for_eagl/linux-2.6-ia64-pv-ops.git/
+    is also available. The tree is based on
+    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/aegl/linux-2.6 test)
+
+
+ 3. copy .config for pv_ops of domU
+    # cp arch/ia64/configs/xen_domu_wip_defconfig .config
+
+ 4. make kernel with pv_ops
+    # make oldconfig
+    # make
+
+ 5. install the kernel and initrd
+    # cp vmlinux.gz /boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6-pv_ops-xenU
+    # make modules_install
+    # mkinitrd -f /boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6-pv_ops-xenU.img \
+      2.6.26-rc3xen-ia64-08941-g1b12161 --builtin mptspi \
+      --builtin mptbase --builtin mptscsih --builtin uhci-hcd \
+      --builtin ohci-hcd --builtin ehci-hcd
+
+========================
+Boot DomainU with pv_ops
+========================
+
+ 1. make config of DomU
+   # vi /etc/xen/rhel5
+     kernel = "/boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6-pv_ops-xenU"
+     ramdisk = "/boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6-pv_ops-xenU.img"
+     vcpus = 1
+     memory = 512
+     name = "rhel5"
+     disk = [ 'file:/root/rhel5.img,xvda1,w' ]
+     root = "/dev/xvda1 ro"
+     extra= "rhgb console=hvc0"
+
+ 2. After boot xen and dom0, start xend
+   # /etc/init.d/xend start
+   ( In the debugging case, # XEND_DEBUG=1 xend trace_start )
+
+ 3. start domU
+   # xm create -c rhel5
