I believe work is in progress - there are some Intel folks working on it.  You 
might find some posts from them in the mailing list archives.

You could also look at KVM (if you have hardware virtualisation support) or 
lguest/lhype.  Neither of them are *currently* as mature as Xen is, but 
running as a kernel module may enable suspend/resume etc. to Just Work 
(although I'm not exactly sure of the status of this).  KVM will be in 2.6.20


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
