Follow the answers:
Version of XEN:
-[root@athlonam2 xen]# rpm -qa | grep xen
Version of Windows:
Windows XP Professional (Without SP2)
Config File:
name = "winXP01"
builder = "hvm"
memory = "500"
disk = [ 'file:/xen/winXP,hda,w', ]
vif = [ 'type=ioemu, mac=00:16:3e:4d:04:12, bridge=xenbr0', ]
uuid = "782aa090-7cee-e300-2da6-20c5bfe5504f"
device_model = "/usr/lib64/xen/bin/qemu-dm"
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen/boot/hvmloader"
serial = "pty" # enable serial console
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'

I saw the follow error in qemu log files:
xs_read(): vncpasswd get error.
I didnt put any password for VNC.

And in debug file, this is the log:
ERROR: Error constructing guest OS
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/server/SrvDomainDir.py",
line 77, in op_create
   dominfo = self.xd.domain_create(config)
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/XendDomain.py",
line 228, in domain_create
   dominfo = XendDomainInfo.create(config)
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/XendDomainInfo.py",
line 195, in create
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/xen/xend/XendDomainInfo.py",
line 1374, in initDomain
   raise VmError(str(exn))

If you have any idea, about what is happening... I apreciate!

Further details would be needed:
- What version (exactly) of Xen are you using?
- What version of Windows are you using?
- What does your VM config file look like (please remove the comments
and blank lines before posting!)?

You may want to look inside /var/log/xen/qemu*.log (cat `ls -lt
/var/log/xen/qemu*.log|head -1` is one way to do that).

Also look at the last few lines of /var/log/xend{-debug}.log to see if
it contains anything useful...

Gernerally, it works to install windows on an Athlon64/Opteron/Turion64
based machine, but there's all sorts of things that can go wrong in the
process, most importantly "Not using the right version of Xen".
