You could also look at KVM (if you have hardware virtualisation support) or
lguest/lhype.  Neither of them are *currently* as mature as Xen is, but
running as a kernel module may enable suspend/resume etc. to Just Work
(although I'm not exactly sure of the status of this).  KVM will be in 2.6.20

Don't know about supend/resume, but the fastest way to test kvm is
probably with grml live cd: http://grml.org.
It contains a Kernel with kvm support, the kvm tools need to be
installed (into ramdisk, that is on the live cd) with apt-get install
kvm. Then modprobe kvm, and  you are up and ready for start your first
kvm system with the kvm command, that works same as qemu.

Takes about 5 minutes, so it beats the xenexpress 10 minutes :)
