I have been working on xen and dom0 kernel packages for RHEL6 and they
are now at the stage where they are suitable for wider testing.

There are xen 4.1 RPMs at http://xenbits.xen.org/people/mayoung/EL6.xen/
which are simply the Fedora 15 package recompiled for RHEL6.

The dom0 kernel packages are at
http://xenbits.xen.org/people/mayoung/testing/ and are basically the
2.6.32-71.29.1.el6 kernel with the addition of xen specific patches from
Jeremy's xen/stable-2.6.32.x branch at the merge, and a few
code and configuration changes to get it to build. It isn't ABI
compatible with true RHEL6 kernels because of the changes. It should set
up grub correctly for a dom0 boot if the hypervisor is present (though I
suggest you check the grub.conf file until it is better tested).

Let me know if you see any problems.
