VT virtual machines have a virtual display adapter, although I understand it's 
not fully optimised for performance yet.  If you ran them both under VT, 
their virtual displays would appear as windows in dom0, or be exported 
directly via VNC.

If you run a paravirtualised Linux alongside the fully virtualised Windows, 
you'd currently want to export its display directly to the network (use X 
protocol, ssh X forwarding, VNC, NX, or whatever you prefer), since there's 
not currently a virtual graphics device for paravirt guests.
