Glad to hear you got it working.

Isn't Xen 3.4 and 2.6.30 kernel only available in sid, not Lenny?
Anyway, the part where xend failed is probably due to mismatch between
hypervisor - userland tools. Although you can (usually) mix-and-match
dom0 kernel (at least on linux anyway), hypervisor and userland (xend,
xm, etc.) version must match.

That one's kinda old, so if you have some time and need newer versions
you might want to try compiling xen 3.4.1 (at least the hypervisor and
userland part) yourself.

Although 2.6.18 is old, depending on your needs this might suit you
better. So if it works for your hardware I suggest stick with 2.6.18
(either form Etch, or compile yourself from xen.org's kernel).
