Each domU has its own /dev that it has full access to.

First you should look at your configuration. What kind of domU is it,
PV or HVM? Where is the kernel located, dom0 or domU? Do you have
access to the kernel's dev files (i.e. to build modules)?

A standard PV domU Xen installation on RHEL should have the kernel on
domU, booted with pygrub. In this case adding fuse support is simply a
matter of installing dkms-fuse (from dag repository).

If you use a hosted Xen environment where your provider uses kernel on
dom0 and disable module loading, there's not much you can do other
than to switch to a new provider.
