What do you mean with "without results"? What did you try exactly, and
what happened?

Sure, you need a base image, which you have to either bootstrap with
yum(a bit complicated) or build with

I have documented OpenSUSE 10.2 (not working with commercial stuff
normally) in german language in my book on Xen, I might try to write the
most important steps down in english somewhere.

Out of my head it's not more than:

- build a minimal image with yast "install into directory" on a suse host
- create your vm config on debian by hand or with xen-tools (use
no-install option to get an empty image and surpass the installation of
an OS)
- copy the stuff from the install into directory into the vm

And there you should be...
