I have a similar setup on openSUSE 10.1, 10.2 and use the following:

disk = [ 'phy:vg/root,hda1,w', 'phy:vg/data,hda3,w', 'phy:vg/swap,hda2,w' ]

extra = '3 root=/dev/hda1 vga=normal'
bootloader = '/usr/lib/xen/boot/domUloader.py'
bootentry = 'hda1:/boot/vmlinuz-xen,/boot/initrd-xen'

So I guess you would need something like root=/dev/hdc1 in "extra" and
hdb1:/boot/vmlinuz-xen,/boot/initrd-xen in your "bootentry" (of course replace
vmlinuz-xen and initrd-xen with whatever kernel and initrd you are actually
