Little bit of success :-)

I uninstalled the old hypervisor.

I was able to install the new xen hypervisor and boot to the new kernel.

after booting when i said

xend start
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/xend", line 36, in <module>
    from xen.xend.server import SrvDaemon
ImportError: No module named xen.xend.server

I got this error message.

I think my python installation got corrupted somehow because
earlier i was able to run it smoothly. Now it is seems to be
misbehaving. Could this be the reason.
