Interesting -- I haven't heard of anything like this.

How much memory does the machine have? How much memory are you
starting dom0 with (on the xen command line)? Have you tried
varying this?

Please can you post the dmesg output of an SMP linux kernel
booting on the same machine.

Do you get a crash message out or does it just reboot? Could you
hook up a serial line to the machine (and configure xen with a
serial console) to capture the xen and domain0 boot messages?

It doesn't sound like a driver issue, and Xen should work on
anything newer than a PPro.
