Redhat is well supported on System p hardware. When you look at the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server information it is called out as IBM POWER for the platform.
As for Xen, I do not believe that it is supported on POWER based on the list of supported platforms RH provides.
However, a POWER machine can be partitioned and have devices and storage virtualized through the Virtual I/O Server (VIOS). The VIOS is very mature functionality and additional information is available. For your particular system you would need to have, at minimum, the Express edition of PowerVM option enabled so that you can create partitions and install a VIOS. Also, PowerVM was previously known as Advanced POWER Virtualization and you might see that in some documentation.
Hope this helps.
