Right, pv-grub-* is used to boot custom kernels. You can read more about
it at and (I think it requires grub1
as pv-grub on linode is configured to look for a menu.lst to get
configuration). I'm not sure if all lucid kernels are built with
CONFIG_XEN and the rest of crack, I use linux-image-virtual myself.
