I have Ubuntu on a SATA disk and Windows on a EIDE disk and I use grub
for dual boot.
I got Windows booting as domU from its own partition (*), but I had to
let the domU see both disks:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sda,ioemu:hda,w', 'phy:/dev/hda,ioemu:hdb,w' ]

I guess this could be very dangerous since /dev/sda is the dom0 disk
and /dev/hda is Windows disk: if at grub menu I chose to load
Ubuntu/Xen I could destroy my partitions.

Is there a better way to avoid such a potential disaster?
