Which OS/distro is it? You might be able to workaround this by
disabling graphical booting. On RHEL/Centos remove "rhgb", while on
Ubuntu remove "splash" from kernel args on grub's menu.lst.

You should set it to a value that allows dom0 to run without swapping
while at the same time allowing domU to start without having to ballon
down dom0 memory. 512MB is a good starting point for a dom0 that
doesn't run any aditional services.
