Centos 4.x works really well with the Xen 2.0.7 release 2.6.x kernels. 
Just make sure that as part of any Centos upgrade to Dom0 you don't get
your kernel default changed under Grub.

There are a couple of Centos / RHEL faqs and HOWTOs out there.

The only issue I have is running Java applications under a VNC Server on
top of Centos or RHEL4. Keeps crashing the VNC server.
