Only the kernel? I'm a little confused. In one of the articles I read 
leaders of various Linux distros were asked about supporting XEN. So 
would all that would be required be to custom compile your Linux kernel? 
  And if NetBSD already supports it, and OpenBSD will support it soon, 
what about FreeBSD?

XEN sounds pretty incredible. After seeing a friend use VMWare like 
crazy and in really awesome ways, I'm excited about this.
