Yes, installing Xen 3.4.2 is very complicated. It's amazing how anyone can
pull it off! :-)
wget http://www.gitco.de/linux/x86_64/centos/5/CentOS-GITCO.repo -O
yum groupinstall Virtualization
Or you could just put in an XCP install disk and take a nap. You'd have the
very stable RHEL 5.5 base for Dom0, Xen 3.4.2 and a kernel roughly
equivalent to what you get in RHEL6.
For the record RHEL6 guests run on Xen as will any future Linux Distros.
