If you don't have anything running in dom0, shouldn't it be fairly
straight forward?  Assuming that you're using LVM for your domU(s):

1. Backup domU(s)
2. Backup domO
3. Install FC6 (leave domU(s) alone)
4. Boo with xen kernel
5. Edit domU configs so that "kernel" and "ramdisk" point to the new
kernel.
6. Boot domU(s)

My domO used to be a RHEL 4 box running the xen packages from xensource.
I converted it to a FC5 box earlier this year.  It was painless.  The
domUs came up right away.

Of course, my setup is fairly simple.  Right now, I have three domUs,
and one bridge.

I'd be interested in hearing exactly what problems you had when you made
the switch from FC4 to FC5.
