I'm running dom0 on Linux with NetBSD as one of the guest domains.

The config file is as follows:

------------------- cut here ----------------

# Kernel image file.
kernel = "/boot/XEN/netbsd-xenU"

vmid = 1

# Initial memory allocation (in megabytes) for the new domain.
memory = 64

# A name for your domain. All domains must have different names.
name = "NetBSD"

# Define network interfaces.

# Number of network interfaces. Default is 1.

vif = [ 'mac=00:00:00:01:42:67' ]

# Define the disk devices you want the domain to have access to, and
# what you want them accessible as.
# Each disk entry is of the form phy:UNAME,DEV,MODE
# where UNAME is the device, DEV is the device name the domain will see,
# and MODE is r for read-only, w for read-write.

disk = [ 
'phy:/dev/vgsystem/lvnetbsd,sda,w','phy:/dev/vgsystem/lvnetbsdswap,sdb,w' ]

------------------ cut here -----------------

This defines two SCSI 'disks' for NetBSD which are backed by LVM
volumes. To get the needed NetBSD kernel you just enter your Xen source
directory and do a "make netbsd20".
