Xen here refers to the *hypervisor* itself (xen.gz). In addition to the hypervisor
you also need a separate dom0 Linux kernel for the host, and domU kernels for PV guests.
Xen dom0 Linux kernel for Squeeze will be based on (afaik) upstream long-term maintained
xen/stable-2.6.32.x branch from xen.git kernel repository.
