In my case, the minimum entry for a PV linux domU is something like this :

memory = "250"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg/rootlv,hda1,w','phy:/dev/vg/swaplv,hda2,w' ]
vif = [ '' ]

no kernel line, no initrd line.
pygrub will search the content of /dev/vg/rootlv for /boot/grub/menu.lst
and (if started with xm create -c) display a menu similar to grub.

pygrub is part of xen userloand tools, it's not a separate package.
You might find it easier to use a GUI frontend (like virt-manager in
RHE) to create a domU. It will setup all the necessary bits, including
