[CentOS-virt] Upgrading Xen 3 on SL 5 server with CentOS 5 and SL 5

I'm dealing with an old Xen 3 server, and badly need to update it and all the vm's on it to more contemporary operating systems. So far, so good!
Can the Xen server on CentOS 5 para-virtualized CentOS 6? And if not, I'm having real trouble getting a live cd or installation media to boot in full virtualization to do the update of the guests.
I'd normally start by updating the Xen server first, but that's not workable right now.
