By theory this should work (and work in many cases). I remember 
incompatibilities with several accelerated AGP / graphic drivers last time i 
tried that, but had that running without acceleration often. Since Xen is in 
the official kernel tree the "compatibility" with drivers got better.

Depending from the hardware it may need further Xen and kernel options to get 
dom0 working as expected from you on your specific hardware.

Not tested to build and run it yet.

The major feature of Xen for most Xen users is the resource optimized Xen PV i 
think. As a "full Virtualizer" (with the required resource overhead) Xen is 
just one of "many"...
