Are you using the Etch Xen packages (3.0.3 or something equally old),
the Etch Backports Xen packages (3.2.1 I think), or have you installed
from XenSource (3.3.0)?

I could barely get the Etch packages running at all when I tried them,
but I used the ones from Backports for quite a while without any major
problems (except they are broken for windows 2008).

I highly recommend that you uninstall all the Debian Xen packages and
install 3.3.0 directly, assuming you are familiar with building kernels
