CentOS 5.x only has Xen 3.0.3 prebuilt. You can use the Gitco repo if
you want a more updated version without building from source.

Put this file in your /etc/yum.repos.d


After that, just do a yum install xen xen-libs xen-devel libvirt
libvirt-devel libvirt-python python-virtinst virt-manager

The -devel packages are obviously optional... as is virt-manager, the
GUI for libvirt.

Currently Gitco is at Xen 3.3.1

You can get more info from the main repo page... http://www.gitco.de/repo/
