it is enabled by default.

for using xen with LinuxBIOS in Rev F and later:
You need to use LinuxBIOS + Kernel + kexec + to load xen.

there is amd64 buildrom that you can used, and put compiled kexec with
static on /boot.

It seems i sent the kexec shell scripts some time ago. you could dig
it out. otherwise I could resent it tonight.
