Sorry, I missied the "debian Lenny" part :P

The similar part for all distro installation as PV is that you need
kernel and initrd for that distro's network install. Some (like Ubuntu
Lucid) can use use the same kernel/initrd pair for both physical
machine and Xen, others (like Centos and Debian) need special
kernel/initrd pair for Xen.

Since you want Debian domU, try http://wiki.debian.org/Xen#DomU.28guest.29
