Do you mean to do an installation? I don't think you need the pxe boot.
You just need to boot the kernel and the ramdisk for the installer? Only
thing is you will have to use a Xen kernel, and then you will have to go
into the ramdisk and replace the modules with the modules for the Xen

Next problem I can think of is when you go to partition the disk. I am
not sure what would happen there. I wonder if you export a partition if
the installer will format it? 

Then it's going to have to install the Xen kernel into the VM at the
finish of install. 

But it would be cool to have an installer that would install a VM.
