Generally you are right.
I don't know if the cd booting stuff works on non-vmx hardware, if not, you
could copy the iso's contents into some partition or vbd file. But you won't
get a cd running which has no xen kernel on it. To achieve this, you could
make a cd containing a domU kernel matching your dom0.
