Thanks to David who put matched xen tools in the xen/linux image, which
solves the problem of memory configuration.

I still can not set IP address from dhcp. For convenience, I post the
configuration file here (See attached file: hao_edi_config); ifconfig
output of dom0 after 'xend' started: (See attached file: ifconfig.out) ;
and error message : "Error: Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Backend
device not found."

I wonder if there is other environment setting we need to follow ? lib
path, command path ?

your xm tools are old, when you update Xen you also need to update
your tools.

The way we build Linux "ip=dhcp" should work and it does on my maple.
perhaps an update of all your scripts is necessary?
