When I run the xen guest operating system from the xen host, I have to VNC

What I would like to do is to do it all from one machine, that is use the
guest operating system from the actual xen host computer.  So all I ever
have is one computer, not two (xen host plus guest and other computer
running the VNC client.)

Maybe I'm getting you wrong, but, why don't you run a VNC server inside the guest and then connect to it on the host? You just run your guest, then connect with vnc client on the same host, to the guest again on the same host.

Or better, you can enable XDMCP in the guest, then logoff from host and logon to that XDMCP session on your guest, using the GDM or KDM on your host. You may also choose to just initiate a new session in your Gnome or KDE.
