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 5.2).

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.)

So, is this a problem with the CentOS 5.1 code? Or is it a problem with the Xen 3.2 for CentOS 5.1?

How stable is Ubuntu for this kind of setup?
