What version of Xen?  If it's Xen 3.0 you can't (yet) give domUs control of 
PCI devices, so not seeing any PCI devices is perfectly normal.  Eventually 
we'll re-implement the abillity to give different guests control of different 
PCI devices, and the "pci =" config option will return once more :-)
