This wouldn't be possible due to the hardware in the box.

It's nothing exotic, standard hardware.  It's a Dell 1425, dual Intel(R) 
Xeon(TM) CPU 2.80GHz.  3ware 9xxx SATA RAID

I'll try again from scratch with the kernel config now.  I'm also having 
problems booting a domU at the moment:

VFS: Cannot open root device "sda1" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I'll recompile a kernel starting with teh defaults specified in 
xen0_defconfig, and see how things go.

Thank god for KVMs with VNC capabilities :)
