This is already dealt with here:

The fix has been uploaded to Debian sid, and I don't really want to compile
this one package myself just to get this one file.
Does someone have a copy of this file (hotplugpath.sh) which I can simply
copy into place?

On the above site click on "xen-utils-common" -> http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?package=xen-utils-common Click on "xen-utils-common package page" -> http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=xen-utils-common Click on "sid (unstable)" -> http://packages.debian.org/sid/xen-utils-common Click on "all" (next to "Architecture" with the headline "Download xen-utils-common") -> http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/xen-utils-common/download
Choose a mirror and download the sid-package with the file in it.

(This works for all Debian packages.)

How to extract files from .deb? Throw "extract deb package" in a search engine and get http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/116

*Maybe* it is possible to simply install (dpkg -i ...) the sid-package in your Debian. I will not test it on my system. ;-)

I tried Paul's answer and it worked, even updated the version I spoke of in
my earlier post. What I did, following the instructions on the last page
Paul referred to, is add "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian sid main" to
my /etc/apt/sources.list (without the quotes) then did;
apt-get update
apt-get install xen-utils-common
You will have to be root to do this.
In the above mirror change 'us' to a mirror near you.

Hope that helps,
PS sorry Paul I meant to send this to the list.
