Xen hypervisor is not really usable without Domain-0 ("dom0").

Dom0 is usually Linux kernel/distribution, and it's used to control the Xen
hypervisor and provide virtual disks and network access to the 
virtual machines (aka guests aka domUs).

So yes, you need Linux aswell, in addition to Xen hypervisor.

Or if you like Opensolaris better than Linux, dom0 support also exists 
for Opensolaris. And for NetBSD.

The bottom line is you _need_ dom0.
