I am trying to follow the steps in your howto, but: Is there a reason
why you install both images?
Yes, this allow you to get a working system in case of Xen failure ;-)

|"aptitude install linux-image-2.6.32-bpo.4-amd64 

When I do that and restart the system, the systems hangs. Shouldn't xen
4.0.0 be installed before rebooting the system?
Not if you choose to work from the non-Xen kernel.

Which kernel do you choose on boot ?
The normal one, the xen enable one, or the old Xen hypervisor ?
If system hangs with normal one, you've got a problem. normally, you should never boot on Xen enable one. Finally, maybe booting Xen hypervisor 3.2 with 2.6.32 xen kernel cause some troubles I'm not aware of.

Do you have any console message to provide ?
