You can't. Not when the key word is PV and SUPPORTED.

RHEL3 uses 2.4 kernel, which can't run as PV guest in Xen >=3. You
MIGHT be able to hack a 2.6 or 3.0 PV kernel to work with RHEL3, but
it will be unsupported.

Another alternative is to contact Redhat. IIRC the supported
configuration is to use HVM (or KVM, if your host is RHEL6), but you
might be able to get PV drivers.
