The linux-image-xen package is the wrapper for Xen domU and dom0
kernels in Ubuntu.
While that image is available in Ubuntu universe, I don't know of an
installable ISO that contains it. Thus, I can't advise you on the
best mechanism for installing a Xen domU of Hardy.

Hmm, well first of all, the linux-image-xen kernel is in Universe, not
Main, so the long term support structure is a little different.
For starters, you'd edit your /etc/apt/sources.list to ONLY pull from
"main" and "restricted", and not "universe" and "multiverse". (Note
that this will exclude linux-image-xen.)
Beyond that, the server packages are a subset of main, and it's
unclear at present how to limit your downloads to just those. We're
working on that, as I understand it.
