Xen seems to require that the guest operating system
cooperate. There's been a port of Windows to do that but
the authors did it as a proof of concept under a restrictive
license from Microsoft and are thus unlikely to release the
code. So if your intent is to run Windows under Xen, that's
a dead end (for now).
Qemu works well enough to install XP, so I'm with Rick. And
it's just an apt-get away.
A commercial alternative to vmware can be found at
win4lin.com. In their feature list, it says " Requires no
patches to the kernel"
