I don't believe it'll work on 64-bit either :-(

Actually, OpenBSD (and probably other "minority" ports like NetBSD, the 
development code for FreeBSD, GNU/Hurd) probably expects to run on 32-bit 
non-PAE as well.

Yes, Hurd does can on Xen.  I managed to build GNU Mach and boot it on Xen, 
but haven't managed to get the Hurd running on top of it.  I've not heard 
much about this port for a while, though.

Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
