Hi Rafal

Yes, that worked nicely, thank-you!  I can get the WinXP cd to boot now.

The only problem is that input via VNC is incredibly slow (30+ seconds
to register a keypress).  Normal vm operation is fine, with everything
that doesn't depend on user input (copying files, loading drivers,
etc) runs as quick as it would if it were running independently of
Xen.  Any idea why?

Thanks again,
