Great stuff!  You should find Xen fine for this...

Yast should have an RPM for twisted you can just install.

Ditto - should be called something like python-distutils or python-devel...

You installed a virtual machines from Yast, right?  Have you installed the Xen 
packages using the Yast rpm manager?  Those *should* add a Xen boot option to 
your grub config (and it should take a couple of minutes, not an hour as it 
did to generate a guest filesystem).

For Debian, install it using "debootstrap" - there's a guide in the Appendix 
of the user manual.  For SuSE virtual machines, create a partition or disk 
file and use Yast to install into a directory.

For many distros, the easiest way to install is to reboot using their install 
CD, install onto a spare partition on your hard drive, then boot back into 
your Xenified dom0 distro and point a domain config file at that partition.
