Yeah, someone else suggested I try "remote desktop", so I did some digging around. Unfourtunately, I found it only exists in the Professional edition of XP, not the Home edition -- which is what I'm using. So I'm still stuck for an answer.
Is this something that should be reported as a bug/issue? I have another HVM-related bug to report too (the BIOS that runs in HVM domains can't boot from >128GB virtual disks), so maybe it's time I started reporting these through the official bug-tracking process.
I assume that the correct route is the bug reporting tab on the xen.org
website? (I ask because I don't know the architecture well enough to know whether to report these as Xen bugs, Qemu bugs, HVM bios bugs, etc.)

(Win XP professional).
This is on a newly installed Debian Etch system and I'm using the
Debian Xen packages and kernel.
As a workaround I did instead set up the "remote desktop" or whatever
it's called in Windows XP (I'm no Windows expert :) and connect to that
instead with krdc (uses rdesktop to connect to the Windows remote
desktop, so rdesktop needs to be installed also, or then use rdesktop
This gives the option to use whatever resolution and color dept I want,
and it's good enough for my needs.
Interesting. Looks like it works with Qemu but not with Xen, or then

it's just that I've missed something(?)
