Solaris 10 installation over XEN RHEL5

I am trying to install Solaris 10 on my desktop(PIV 2.8 dual core ,3GB RAM) running RHEL5 .Full xen virtualisation is not supported by the processor but i have installed RHEL5 in xen . I cannot boot with any other OS in XEN when i try to install it . I am using the localhost web server for storing the installation image .

I have also tried using Sun virtual box . I can install solaris 10 over my linux installation but it is very slow and cannot be used .
Can someone advise on how i can install solaris in xen ....thanks in advance

According the the Xen FAQ, Xen 3.0 does support Solaris 10 as a DomU.

A quick google search came up with this. It is based on CentOS, but should be same or similar process for RHEL.
