Be aware that:
A. VMWare server is still beta (Beta 2 was released two weeks ago) but
it's reasonably stable.
B. Running Windows on Xen requires either: 1. Modified (or should I say,
Xenified) version of the Windows kernel (which you might have access
to ;)) or 2. VT capable hardware. (Currently, only a limited number of
Intel CPUs are VT enabled; AMD VT core are to be released within Q2).

In short, VMWare Beta is the best option.
