However, DomU image has to have either xen-ified or
pv_ops enabled kernel along with initrd installed.
It makes life easier allow not to copy this stuff off
DomU image to Dom0.

pygrub just looks for a bootable disk with the kernel and initrd on it.
You don't need to install Xen on the DomU at all.

Step 2 basically translates to install a xen compatible (pv) OS of
choice. That's basically any *nix.

Nothing fancy.
