Whilst the "not compatible with non-i686 processor" may well be true,
that's certainly not the reason for your crashes - as the K6 is a i686
compatible processor. 

Do you by any chance have a serial port - in which case you should add
"console=com1 com1=115200,8n1" to the kernel line in grub.conf. (that's
the line with xen.gz on it).  
If not, perhaps you can get more info with the "noreboot" option on the
kernel line for Xen - that way it won't just get back to the boot-rom
when it crashes. 

Adding "sync_console" may also help, particularly if you're using serial
port (as will "noreboot").
