FreeBSD has gotten Xen support in fits and starts over the last few years. An internet search will show a port of FreeBSD 5 to Xen2, freeBSD 7 to Xen 3.0.2 and some chatter about support in 8-CURRENT.

update: it is in 8-current and now has a mailing list

Now, to the best of my knowledge, most of the work for all of these was done by Kip Macy. (thanks!) I just want to make it clear, all I'm doing here is documenting the install and (maybe) making some tarballs of the results of my compilation available.

Now, I don't actually have a convenient machine laying about. I'm going to try to do this as an hvm guest. I setup a xen 3.3 host earlier today, and so now I"m setting up FreeBSD under HVM.
