You're running LVM in dom0, not in the guest, right?  In which case, the 
volgroup won't be visible to the guest.

Instead, add another entry in you disks list (in the domain config file), 
exporting this as another block device (like you did for the root).


disks = [ 'file:/the/root.img,sda1,w', 'phy:/dev/VolGroup00/SwapVM1,sda2,w' ]

Configure "sda2" as swap in the guest.  Note that you must *never* share a 
swap device between multiple guests, or between the guest and the host.
