I tried that once and fiddled around with it, but wasn't really
successfull (long time ago, can't remember the exact problems).

I'm not sure anymore, if I tried with a machine with one or two cards.

Sure, you have to hide the PCI/AGP port from the dom0 - with using one
card only, this means you have _no_ graphics output and you have to run
So, having two cards might make it easier, but I don't know if it's even
