Very good news!
Thank you.

I've googled and find this pages:
* [http://ropersonline.com/openbsd/xen/openbsd-xen-howto OpenBSD Xen HOWTO]
* [http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=115020845610220&w=2 HOWTO Run 
OpenBSD/amd64 port for Xen]

May be the links will be useful for somebody.

And what about 64 bit hosts?

I forgot GNU/Hurd.
As far as I know GNU/Hurd can run as Xen guest?
At least I have seen page where described how to use GRUB to run 
GNU/Hurd in Xen domain 
So I've decided that GNU/Hurd can run inside Xen.

Am I right?
