I too am attempting to live migrate a 32bit Guest from a 64 bit Dom-0 to a
32bit Dom-0 and haven't succeeded yet. Is this possible?

I am running the kernel ( 2.6.18-128.el5xen) which came with RHEL5.3

May be true, I too have observed this on my 64bit Dom-0 where I am running
32bit Dom-U's. I guess they are running under HVM. Little clarification is
needed here.. Can we run 32 Dom-U's under PV on 64 bit Dom-0 ?
