so that is a pv install.

if you still have the lenny vm around and urging for a graphical frame
buffer, you can export/import it on your new server.
The citrix template list is quite restrictive, but I guess it is the
template list with commercial support from citrix. You can install many
other non listed os without much hassle actually.
For the squeeze PV vm, you can convert it to HVM so you have a graphical
frame buffer. I think the following line should do it (you may also have
to set your hard drive to "bootable") :
xe vm-param-set HVM-boot-policy="BIOS order" uuid=<vm uuid>
xe vm-param-set PV-args="" uuid=<vm uuid>
xe vm-param-set PV-bootloader-args="" uuid=<vm uuid>
