RHEL-5 anaconda uses (optional) installation numbers which are basically
encoding what the 'default' package set associated with your subscription
is. So I expect whoever built it used an installation number with the 
Virtualization capability enabled, thus enabling Xen packages by default.
If you're kickstarting simply turn of  the 'Virtualization' group 
explicitly to override this, or unselect it in the UI.
