Google "migrate xen vm to kvm" (a common question - Google even auto-filled the question for me )

You should find many links, including:

Hi -

If you had purchased the latest/greatest Redhat Enterprise, there might be some fancy migration tool and/or an "officially recommended procedure".

But since you're on Centos (Centos 5.5), just pretty much choose whatever procedure most appeals to you, and post a new thread with any specific questions you might have or problems you might encounter.

IMHO .. PSM

PS:
