   I'm running a 6.1_RC3 DOM0 successfully on a Xen 4.2 kernel and
tools, though on an Athlon II X4 640 w/Gigabyte motherboard.

menu=Boot Xen 4.2 DOM0:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0 console=pc;multiboot 
/usr/pkg/xen42-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=3072M

   If 4.2 doesn't work for you, I'd suspect something specific to
the hardware. Maybe try adjusting BIOS settings to see if that gets
you any further.
