XCP 1.0 requires a 64-bit CPU. While XCP's dom0 is 32-bit, the Xen
hypervisor it includes is 64-bit. With Project Kronos, where we're
porting XenAPI to run on Debian, it might be possible to install a
32-bit hypervisor, and then install XenAPI on top of that. The XenAPI
Debian packages are pre-alpha right now, so this won't be an option for
you for another couple months.
