I would install the Xen packages from source, especially if you plan
on running the unstable or testing versions of Xen. The binary
packages (from the Xen website) work fine with Debian, too.

Just follow the documentation on the Xen website. If you need to
create a custom dom0 or domU kernel, though, be sure to perform a
'make' in the root source directory first -- otherwise, you'll just
have sparse trees.
