That's why I asked "for what?".

libvirt (including virt-manager) is a separate program, not part of
xen. The books you mentioned MIGHT have some documentation on it.
However the primary userland command for xen is xm/xl and (if you use
xcp or xapi toolstack) xe.

At this point I'd suggest you finish reading and testing RHEL's
virtualization guide, to get an idea on how xen-for-dummies work.
After that, start by reading
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_Beginners_Guide .

After that, you can either browse other pages of the wiki and ask
questions on what you don't understand, or buy one of the books that
you mentioned.

There used to be a complete guide for xen 3.0 at
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos/xen/documentation.html ,
but at this point I recommend you don't read that yet, and instead
read the above documentation first.
