And the script simply uses the iSCSI Software initiator on the dom0 to load the 
disk, then figures out the device automatically and uses that for the 
disk...pretty much what Fajar suggested.

I'd like to see iSCSI support in a little bit different fashion than this.  As 
of Xen 3.4, HVM supports gPXE, which can boot from either iSCSI or AOE.  It'd 
be nice to be able to pass an iSCSI disk through in the Xen config and have 
gPXE pick it up during boot.  Perhaps a pipe dream, but it would be nice.  For 
PV domUs this should be even easier, as the iSCSI target could be connected to 
the dom0 to load the kernel, then the arguments for iSCSI target passed on into 
the created domU.
