I have posted about this problem a few times and even
though I have received answers from list users nothing
has worked.  I was downloading mediawiki on Debian
when I encountered a out of memory error and the
process was unable to fork.  When I cat
/proc/partitions in the domU it shows:
major minor  #blocks  name

   3     1    3072000 hda1
   3     2     196608 hda2

and a top shows this:
top - 09:58:16 up 26 days, 19:13,  1 user,  load
average: 0.03, 0.07, 0.05
Tasks:  50 total,   2 running,  48 sleeping,   0
stopped,   0 zombie
Cpu(s):  0.0% us,  0.0% sy,  0.0% ni, 100.0% id,  0.0%
wa,  0.0% hi,  0.0% si
Mem:    129156k total,    92060k used,    37096k free,
       0k buffers
Swap:        0k total,        0k used,        0k free,
   59400k cached

That is the only problem that I believe I'm having
with my xen installs (yes all of my installs on Debian
exhibit the same problem).

I have sent my kernel configs and domain configs but

If someone can help let me know.  I was thinking of
implementing a xen server for this company but I don't
feel secure that in case things get heavy on the
server there will not be any swap space.  I would
rather the server thrash swapping than die.
