Just stop right there.

If you ONLY have 32bit cpu, and you ONLY have 1GB to give to
virtualbox to test, then don't bother using XCP. You simply don't have
enough resource to test. If you had (for example) a PC/notebook with
64 cpu and 4G of RAM, you'll have more room to test.

As it is, if you wanted to do tests you'd better stick with either
RHEL5 or ubuntu 12.04, with their respective version of xen, on bare
