My main question is if nthere is a tutorial that can help me with
getting xen installed and configured correctly, configure a guest,
install a guest, and boot the guest using the above configuration?
The Debian wiki has a page on Xen which covers the basic host install
http://wiki.debian.org/Xen . I've been working on this page recently, if
anything isn't clear or you think could be expressed better please do
feel free to edit it (or just send me your feedbak).

That same page also has some discussion of guest install methods, e.g.

As others have mentioned you are probably better off using LVM than
