Go through the Driver Domain section in the Xen Users Guide. I think its section 5.3. It explains how you can hide a NIC card from Dom0 and allow a DomU to load a driver for the device. I have tried this with Xen 3.1 and it should work for 3.2 as well.

Here is another link : http://www.wlug.org.nz/XenPciPassthrough

Besides there are ample posts on the xen mailing lists on this topic that will help.
