Do you use the default kernel images that came with XEN? If so, they
don't include devfs support and so a standard debian initrd won't work,
as it is heavily based on devfs.
I get very good results using yaird as initrd toolkit. There are
backports available for sarge, have a look at http://www.backports.org/.
