Hi Alan,

Any reason not to use the CentOS Xen packages?  I do seem to recall the RHEL 5 
version of Xen for x86_64 being classified as for testing purposes rather than 
stable / supported, so maybe that is your reason?

virt-install, virt-manager, etc are provided in CentOS / RHEL packages and are 
not part of Xen.  You can install them from the CentOS repositories but - and 
I'm going on ancient memories here - as I recall they are somewhat linked to 
also installing the Xen RPMs from the repositories, so doing mix & match with 
the packaged virt-* and your source install of Xen could also be tricky.

If you don't want to go down that route, I guess the alternative would be to 
download the source versions of virt-* and friends and install them manually?  
Not so appealing, I'll admit...
