I have recently installed a new 64-bit install of CentOS 5.3 (Kernel 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen). I have created a xen configuration file based on what I have done in the past on other servers. When I do an xm create on the guest host it doesn't give any error, but when I try to connect to the host with VNC to complete my install I just get a black window, it sits there and doesn't do anything. The mode is Blocked mode when I do an "xm list". I am a bit confused as to what I can check next as everything I am doing as worked in the past on other xen servers.
Here is my config:
