WOOT, I got it up thanks to an e-mail from Mats Paetersson:

Xenconsole doesn't work for fully virtualized domains.

To get more info, we need to see "xm dmesg", your config file, perhaps
(if it looks useful) /var/log/xen/xend{-debug}.log or

First thing: check if there's a "qemu-dm" running (ps ax|grep qemu) - if
you give the wrong settings in the config file, the qemu-dm may die and
that leaves the guest "not doing anything".

"ps ax|grep qemu" showed qemu-dm [defunct], then i looked for the log and there wasnt one, so i did an apt-get install qemu and now the hardware virtualized domain starts and stays up weee, now i just need to figure out how to access it because i am on ubuntu server with no gui, and i am trying to boot off an install disk, would doing the walkthrough to enable console in HVM work on ubuntu server?

You don't "xm console" into a hvm domain's console.

You use vnc, or start it in sdl mode - depending on how you configured
it. See docs - but come back if you have further questions...
