    I have installed "Xen" on Fedora16 host using "yum install xen" command

    listed in the boot menu. On further analyzing I found that in
    /etc/grub.conf there is no entry related to Xen. Do we need to modify

    Please help me with this.
You can tweak the Xen hypervisor cmdline options in:
/etc/default/grub file, like this:

The only thing I see in fc17 (also) is a
set default="Xen"
line in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

I've been waiting, hoping, and did a fresh install of Fedora 17, then
"yum install xen", in anticipation (again) of Fedora/Xen/dom0 boot

And did you run "grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg" ?

What's the problem?
FWIW, my original problem, being that the system in question is i686,
was that kernel-PAE had not been installed before xen-hypervisor.
However, even after that the
set default="Xen"
accomplishes nothing as "Xen" does not exactly match the entries put
Whoops. Did putting 'Xen 4.1.2" do it?

Nope, but
set default="Fedora, with Xen hypervisor"
does work.
At first glance, I didn't see how to fix that, but can look if I get time.

The second problem is that the grub menu entries are built from /boot/xen*, but they should not be, as such a list includes xen-syms* (not bootable), and symlinks which just repeat entries. [thought I brought this up or bz'd this before... hmm.]
I hacked together these changes to 20_linux_xen which worked for me
