How would your "users" access your notobook?

Anyway, yes, it's possible. But you'd be better of having them using a
remote gui client (e.g. nx, rdesktop) to access their desktop instead
of using xen's vnc frame buffer.

And I suggest you list what you need first. Really, using a notebook
for other users to access is not a best option. While Xen - the open
osurce hypervisor that can be installed on top of a normal linux
distro - is suitable for many purposes, it's not really
newbie-friendly right now.

If it's just for you to test various distros, virtualbox might be
better. If it's a virtual-desktop-type server enviroment, xen server
or vmware esxi is much easier to manage.
