Untested!

I'm not entirely sure about Novell's stance on Xen. There's some documentation in the opensuse.org wiki, but a lot of it outdated and a bit SLES centric, but let's see what we have so far.

openSUSE 11.3 M3

 # zypper search xen
 [...]
 | kernel-xen                   | The Xen Kernel
 | kernel-xen-base              | The Xen Kernel - base modules
 | xen                          | Xen Virtualization: Hypervisor (aka VMM aka Microkernel)
 | xen-tools                    | Xen Virtualization: Control tools for domain 0
 | xen-tools-domU               | Xen Virtualization: Control tools for domain U
 | xen_server                   | Xen Virtual Machine Host Server


Looks pretty much complete to me. After installing these, our GrUB configuration may look like this:

 # grep -A5 Xen /boot/grub/menu.lst
 title openSUSE 11.3 - Xen
 root (hd0,0)
 kernel /xen-4.0.gz
 module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.34-3.1-xen root=/dev/sda1
 module /boot/initrd-2.6.34-3.1-xen
