You would have to install the 64-bit version of FreeBSD.  I'm told running 
32-bit guests on a 64-bit hosts doesn't work in CentOS 5.1 (will work in 

I've successfully installed FreeBSD 6.3 (32-bit and 64-bit) and FreeBSD 
7.0 (32-bit and 64-bit) in Xen 3.2 HVMs running on 64-bit Ubuntu Hardy 
using 2.4.24 for the dom0.  (As well as in KVM HVMs running on Debian 
Lenny, 2.6.22 and 2.6.24.)
