It should run on there, sure.  Although you'll want to check whether the CPUs 
support VT (pretty much all recent Xeons will, I think).

You'll either want to do a 32-bit PAE install or a 64-bit install in order to 
access all that memory.  I believe potentially the best performance for PV 
*may* be had by using 64-bit Xen and running 32-bit PAE guests (including 
dom0).  This is because there are some difficult-to-avoid performance issues 
with 64-bit PV.  For HVM, things are a bit different.

Hope that helps somewhat!
