RTFM - care to be more specific? And how is it that a valid boot image being declared 'bad' and unable to fit into memory is not a bug?

RTFM.

I have had an opportunity to reboot the workstation and found that while it does not work from the command line, it does boot correctly. I can only assume that this is because memory that would be free at boot time isn't once you have an operating system up and running.

Whether or not this is a bug, it cost us countless hours so the error could probably afford to be more useful.

xen-2.0.5 binaries installed onto a local workstation (Dell Optiplex GX280) gave a similar error:

I am unable to setup xen 2.0.5 (http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/) on a colo Athlon 2000+ box per the following error. The binaries were downloaded from http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/Research/SRG/netos/xen/downloads/xen-2.0.5-install.tgz and I have tried both with xen.gz and xen (gunzip xen.gz).

   GNU GRUB  version 0.95  (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)

[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
 lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
 completions of a device/filename. ]

grub> root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

grub> kernel /boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 console=vga
 [Multiboot-elf, <0xb72f2000:0x3ef3c:0x360c4>(bad)

Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory

grub>

If I compile a more recent version (0.96 and CVS20050331) I get a Segmentation Fault:

    GNU GRUB  version 0.96  (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)

 [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB

grub> root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83

grub> kernel /boot/xen.gzSegmentation fault

The partition (hd0,0) is an ext3 partition currently mounted rw on an 80Gb IDE drive.

I have not yet recompiled xen from scratch but do not believe it to be a problem with xen itself as this is a public release that is known to work elsewhere.

I do not have access to the physical hardware as it is in another country. Perhaps lspci is useful:
