I am able to successfully run RHEL 3.0 update 5 as DomU in fully
virtualized mode when i try creating a VM using virt-manager in
paravirtualized mode i get the following errors

i checked for directory /var/lib/xen it is missing  i could see
/var/lib/xend though

Did you say RHEL 3 update 5? There is no paravirtualized kernel for any RHEL 3 update. Fully virtualized is your only option. RHEL 4.5 (just released) is paravirtualizable, as well as RHEL 5.0.

Take care,
