Building your own kernel in FreeBSD

 Your Xen VPS is setup much like standalone FreeBSD server.  We do not use a custom kernel or even any special kernel modifications or modules.  You can compile your own kernel in the same way you would on a standard FreeBSD server.

On our standard VPS installation, the kernel sources are not installed but you get them from a FTP or SVN mirror. 

Please see the FreeBSD handbook for more instructions: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/kernelconfig-building.html
