I had the same problem, but Bastian Blank pushed me in the right
direction.  Basically your kernel does not match your hypervisor. for
debian kernel 2.6.17-2-xen-686 you need at least the following hypervisor:
ii  xen-hypervisor-3.0-unstable-1-i386 3.0-unstable+hg11218-1 The Xen 
Hypervisor on i386-class
