ok, now I have a tricky question. Do I need to have both kernels installed? What if I remove the standard kernel, and only keep the xen kernel?

Well, I kept the non-xen kernel around in case the automatically starting xen domU's would crash the system. In that case, I can easily start the box with a non-xen kernel to resolve the problem.

But technically, I see no reason to keep them around.
