Installing FC4 domU on FC5 dom0

I need a little help with creating a FC4 domU on a FC5 dom0 image. I need the FC4 image to allow me to run Oracle 9i (I know 10g is out, but want 9i).

I have successfully installed all the FC4 packages using groupinstall Base.

The problem is which domU kernel do I use as:-
a) Using the FC5 kernel vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5xenU causes the eth0 interface not to be recognised.
b) Using the FC4 kernel vmlinuz-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4xenU causes the following error:-
[root@host xen]# xm create -c fc4
Using config file "fc4".
Error: (22, 'Invalid argument')

This is a copy of the xen config file:-

name = "fc4"
kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4xenU"
memory = "100"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg00/fc4_root,sda1,w' ]
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:04:2f:ef' ]
root = "/dev/sda1"
extra = "ro selinux=0"

Would someone give me a clue on what combination of kernels config files etc I need. I'm fairly sure that I need the FC4 XenU kernel

Found the answer,
use the FC5 kernel to boot the FC4 image and include "alias eth0 xennet" in modprobe.conf.
