My configuration is the following:

Xen 3.3.1 compiled from sources(with PAE enabled)
Dom0 Debian Etch i386

I'm trying to create Debian domU from scratch with netinst and get the
kernel and ram disk to boot to installation procedure from install.386/
folder of netinst iso image.

Is that kernel a xen kernel, or a plain i386 kernel?
Usually you need -xen kernel for that.

I guess Lenny kernel in netinst image has pv_ops support. I think that the problem is that PAE support is not included in it. Does dom0 kernel and domU kernel both should have PAE enabled in case it is enabled in dom0?

Also I've noted that there was a such problem with installing Fedora 11 in

F11 comes with newer kernel, which have pv_ops support. So in short
with F11 you can use the same kernel for both xen and bare metal.
