Hi Pezza,

Since you're running CentOS, you should use Centos 5.1's xen packages
(when it's out). It's based on xen 3.1, but the rpm version stays at 3.
You could also rebuilt RHEL 5.1's srpm (available now).

I tried building from source, but it didn't work quite right. RHEL's
packages work great for me.

Different hg changeset, uncommited patches, etc.
