Download xen:

The combined source distribution is a good idea.

Untar it somewhere

 $ tar -zxvf xen-3.4.0.tar.gz

Go in there and prep the kernels

 $ cd xen-3.4.0
 $ make prep-kernels KERNELS="linux-2.6-xen0 linux-2.6-xenU"

If you don't use the prefix "linux-2.6-xen" xen will ignore it.

Do any configuration necessary for those kernels

 $ cd build-linux-2.6.18-xen0_x86_32 whatever...
 $ cd ..

Then build all the parts of xen. Supposedly 'make world' will do this but it usually fails for me.

 $ make xen
 $ make install-xen
 $ make tools
 $ make install-tools
 $ cd build-linux-...
 $ make
 $ make modules_install
 $ make install
