I'm a bit confused about the kernel used by the Xen hypervisor. I've just installed a 30 day trial of XenSource's Enterprise edition software on a Sun Fire 4600.

It was my understanding that it would install a 64 bit hypervisor, however, upon running uname -a on my machine, I am told that I am running a i686 kernel. Did I miss something? How does one use a 64 bit kernel?
