Posting back to the list - I must put my hands up and admit I know very 
little about Xen in Ubuntu - but if Dom0 is crashing then that is a 
sign that the kernel is pretty unstable, and not much use to you. (My 
email address will provide a big hint as to the platform I use most

You can't take the openSUSE kernel and use it on a Debian based system - 
I took your original question to mean which distributions will provide 
a later kernel with Xen components that you could use in place of (the 
currently not working) Ubuntu. Apologies for the confusion.

With RHEL you can always look at CentOS or similar, with SLES you can 
download it for free and have 60 (I think) days of updates available 
whilst you evaluate it. Or, of course, upgrade to the gutsy distro and 
see if that cures your existing problems.
