Yup, this fixed my issue.  Things are looking good now.  This is just
my virtual XP workstation for Outlook and a couple of other programs,
but so far I'd say it 'feels' better.  It's obvious the network driver
is configured, as it's all that shows up in the network applet now.  I
see the Xen Block Device Driver in the scsi section of the device
manager, but is there any clear way to verify the PV block device is
active?  Powershell certainly seemed to load 4-6 seconds faster.

In the future, would I just install new versions over the top of the
current version?

In any event, thanks a ton for all your help getting this up and
going.  Hopefully my XP vm won't be as painfully sluggish any more;
the underlying machine is certainly fast enough.
