i am using ubuntu 8.04 and my cpu is p4 2.6g (single core) which definitely DON'T support VT tech and of course there could't be "disable vt" options in BIOS. I am now wondering that whether i could use xen to emulate guest operating system without the support of vt in cpu? Are there some command or scripts to forbid it?

It's not possible to create HVM domains without VT support in your CPU. You can use other virtualization software (e.g. qemu or virtualbox) however.
