For distributions that provide Xen-enabled kernels, just boot
the kernel+install ramdisk. For example, for Scientific linux 6,
I used kernel+ramdisk from scientific/6.1/i386/os/images/xen
(wich actually is the same as scientific/6.1/i386/os/images/pxeboot,
as it seems that today's linux kernels can run as native or PV).
