Default Virtualizing a Physical Ubuntu Server

Now that I have a Xen host server up and running, what is the best way to move a physical machine over to the Xen host?

I have seen that there is the migrate command. But that appears to move a VM from one host to another.

I thought maybe it is as simple as just copying the folders over one at a time. But I am not sure that would work since I would imagine the /boot folder would be different. Then there are differences in hardware between the two machines as well.

Any suggestions? Otherwise, I will just have to build a similar setup as a VM and move the data files over.

Thanks.
