You can run (in theory) any FreeBSD on a hardware that has HVM support. 
You can check that with xm info. You can only run FreeBSD 8 as a PV 
guest with 32bit arch and hvm-pv with amd64. For the pv or the hvm-pv 
mode you have to compile the XEN (for 32bit) or XENHVM (amd64) kernel 

You'll have to install FreeBSD as a hvm guest and after a successful 
install you may go on with the above mentioned kernels.

For pv mode use only 1 vcpu and max 2 for hvm-pv.
