    2.18 +Troubleshooting Problems
    2.19 +========================
    2.20 +
    2.21 +If you have problems booting Xen, there are a number of boot parameters 
    2.22 +that may be able to help diagnose problems:
    2.23 +
    2.24 + noacpi   	turn acpi probing off, which may confuse Xen on some chipsets
    2.25 + watchdog	enable NMI watchdog which can report certain failures
    2.26 + nosmp		disable SMP support
    2.27 + noht		disable Hyperthreading
    2.28 + ifname=ethXX	select which Ethernet interface to use if you have multiple
    2.29 + ifname=dummy	don't use any network interface
    2.30 + ser_baud=xxx	set serial line baud rate for console 
    2.31 + dom0_mem=xxx 	set the initial amount of memory for domain0. Xen will also
    2.32 +		  reserve some memory fr itself too. 
    2.33 +		  
    2.34 +
    2.35 +It's probably a good idea to join the Xen developer's mailing list on
