Do you mean XCP ISO?

It's intended to run on bare metal, not as a VM.

In dom0 kernel source/build I do see *front drivers being included and thought I could use it as domU VM as well.

It can work as HVM domU, but performance-wise it'd suck. Still useful
for testing purposes though.

any 64bit HVM OS template should work, as long as it has pae and acpi on.

I actually want PV.

If you're thinking about using custom kernels, you might be better off
using a linux distro that comes with xen (opensuse, centos, ...)

I basically want custom kernel and couldn't find information on building/installing as a domU using Citrix template(the ones I see in centos.org are using "xm" cli which will not work since my dom0 is a Citrix Xenserver). Any pointers will be very helpful.
