be interesting for the most xen users.

Have you tried booting a domU to an install root disk? (I tried this with Slackware but I think I had other issues at the time.)

You could also try mounting an install iso, copying it to a scratch partion, and using that as a base to install from. (Boot a domU with that partition as root, install against another partition.)
