Default Which XEN howto is recommended for webhosting?

Some time ago i've setup XEN on Debian Lenny according:

HOWTO 1:
http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...an-lenny-amd64

Today i noticed that there is another way to setup XEN by following this new howto:

HOWTO 2:
http://www.howtoforge.com/virtualiza...enserver-5.5.0

Now i wonder myself what is the big difference between those two methods?

The Virtual machine which are created according HOWTO 1 are LVM based virtual machines, which is what i want, but is it also the case when i follow the 2nd HOWTO ?

Is it better to follow the 2nd howto because XEN-SERVER provided by Citrix is much newer then the verion which comes with Debian Lenny or not?

What are the advantages/disadvantages?

Besides the version, are there big differences anyway?

Which is the better solution for webhosting?
