The cdrom= syntax is deprecated, though I'm not sure that's actually the cause 
of your problem.

Instead you should have your disk line look something like:

disk = 
[ 'phy:xendoms/winxp,hda,w', 'file:/vservers/home/shared/winxp.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' 

AFAIK it's nolonger necessary to put "ioemu" into the device name, so I've 
omitted it here.
