Looks good, few random thoughts as I read it:

You might want to link to
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/HostConfiguration/Networking from the "Network
Configuration" section, it gives a few more details and examples of
other configurations etc.

"Creating vms" could link to
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Category:Guest_Install for info on installing a
variety of guests on Ubuntu.

>From the context I think "sudo pvs" should be "sudo vgs" (you want to
get a list of volume groups, not the underlying physical volumes)

Is "sudo ln -s /usr/lib/xen-4.1/bin/pygrub /usr/bin/pygrub" really
needed? If so then that's strictly speaking a bug in Ubuntu. I'm pretty
sure that was fixed in Debian, so it might just be a case of synching
the relevant patch. Let me know if you want me to dig out what the
change was.

mostly applies to Ubuntu too, although perhaps linking it would a bit confusing 
if there were any differences.

You might want to reference xmdomain.cfg(5) and/or
http://xenbits.xen.org/docs/unstable/man/xmdomain.cfg.5.html when giving
example configurations?

        sudo reboot
        sudo /etc/init.d/xend stop
I think you'd be better recommending the relevant "update-rc.d xend
disable" rune, followed by a reboot.

mirror.clarkson.edu might not appreciate having a bunch of ubuntu newbie
Xen users hammering their system... Reference some Fedora mirror list

I might steel the libvirt bit for a Debian page ;-)
