For some weird reason the problem went away after I fixed the line
in "/grub/menu.lst":

title Xen 3.1 / NetBSD (hda0, serial)
  kernel (hd0,a)/xen.gz dom0_mem=718592 com1=115200,8n1
  module (hd0,a)/netbsd rootdev=/dev/wd0a ro console=ttyS0 

According to the example this should read "bootdev" which results
in the kernel asking for the root filesystem. With the above entry
the machine boots.

Would anybody object if I correct that part of the HOWTO?

        Kind regards
