What's the xen status of the driver that just entered testing (195.36.24-1)? 
The module builds for all variants of the 2.6.23-5 kernel, including xen, but 
it has not been tested, yet. None of the members of the Debian NVIDIA 
Maintainers team is running a xen kernel. The nvidia-kernel-source currently 
contains no patches for xen support - all patches were heavily outdated and 
did not apply any longer, so they have been removed from the overhauled 
package recently.
