Would it be possible to make an image of these disks to use with Xen ?

dd is your friend :)

Anyways, would you have a tutorial or something along those lines that shows how to do such a thing ?

No, but this is trivial. Just dump the disk to an image file. Setup a kernel, try this thing to boot, and have fun.
