... and I just want to say, that having tested Fedora8/development
kernel, I can confirm that 32 on 64 works as expected. In the test setup
I use :
- RHEL5 x86_64 dom0
- F8's kernel-xen-2.6.21-2950.fc8.x86_64.rpm
- custom-built xen-3.1.1 rpm
- RHEL 4.5 i386 domU, with kernel-xenU-2.6.9-55.EL

You could simplify things a lot by simply using F8 for dom0.

Just follow the tutorial and it should work. Note that even though it says "
3)  Herbert Xu's network segmentation offload could not be
    backported to RHEL4 without destabilizing the network
    layer for non-Xen kernels too, so network performance
    in RHEL4 Xen guests will not be as good as that in RHEL5.

testing with iperf says I have 1.60 Gbits/sec transfer rate from dom0 to
domU, so network works just fine.
