Hello there,
In my job we have two R710s with XEN/Debian amd64 with ~25 domUs each
and they work like a charm.
Debian stable kernel (2.6.26) & hypervisor (3.2)

Have in mind that the Debian installer does not have the firmware for
the network card (in case you use an netinstall cd) and you have to
plug a usb flash with it, when asked during the installation.

ia64 needs an Itanium processor. You can install amd64 or x86 architectures.
