Don't build the nvidia modules for a xen kernel.  It won't run there.
Compile it for the host kernel (which shouldn't be the xen kernel).  The
nvidia drivers won't work under a hypervisor, only on a natively running
linux kernel.

Use linux-image-2.6.26-1-686 or linux-image-2.6.26-1-686-bigmem, not

Install gcc 4.1.2 if that is what you compiled your kernel with.
