AFAIK there is no "correct" way to do this. The "official" method of
guest installation on RHEL/Centos dom0 is using
virt-manager/virt-install, however it does not support Ubuntu yet.
Ubuntu supports several methods (including xen-tools), but AFAIK not
all of them are available on RHEL/Centos.

Personally I use debootstrap to create initial template and use it
afterwards, but it's somewhat advanced method as it requires many
manual steps.
