My machine has two controllers actually. One IDE controller
00:1f.2 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 631xESB/632xESB/3100 Chipset
SATA IDE Controller (rev 09)

And one HW RAID (the one I pasted earlier). The active one on my
system is the AAC one.

I started with standard installation, do a "yum groupinstall
Virtualization", then adjust grub default entry. These are the
relevant versions

# rpm -qa | grep xen

I chose this method since it allows me to verify first that the OS
works correctly without Xen. Once I'm sure of it, I installed Xen. The
somewhat old version is because I haven't reboot this system in almost
a year :)

You could also choose to install virtualization during installation,
which gives you xen kernel right away.
