We run Xen on Debian Sarge on a Supermicro Dual 3.06 64 bit and 4 GB RAM, 
though not using 64 bit yet which is mainly because of Xen but also because 
of the scsi-driver that isn't 64 bit clean for the scsi-onboard-controller 
which is bad luck! I don't understand why the reseller sell a combination of 
64 bit hardware which isn't working with the scsi-controller on linux.

Anyway the Supermicro with Xen runs a fairly big website with about 30-60K 
unique visitors each month on a filebacked domU with 1 GB RAM.
Surveilance checks every 5 minutes for a responsetime from three different 
physical locations and triggers an alarm if it goes above 5000 ms. It has run 
almost for a month and no alarms :) And a weekly newsletter to about 20K 
subscribers is also sent from this domU.
