Once you've installed Xen itself and XenLinux and they boot OK, with all your devices working you should be able to do everything else remotely (install the userspace prereqs, the Xen management tools, etc).

And if you're really good, you can get the system booting Xen without physical access. Though serial console is, on occasion, a handy thing to have, once you've set everything up as it should be, you shouldn't need it again.
