The only 'gotcha' would be his Step #12; to properly install XenServer Tools for Linux guest, follow these steps given in http://www.bishopbarrington.net/wiki/howto/lucidonxenserver#xenserver_tools_installation with the following changes:
  1. Swap steps 1 & 2 (boot VM and login before mounting the CD)
  2. Adapt the name of the .deb file in step 4
  3. Swap steps 5 & 6 (fix service before rebooting VM)
Note: follow the steps of **ONLY** the "XenServer Tools installation" section! No need for makepv.sh
