That is correct.  Here is my VM config:

kernel = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-xen"
ramdisk = "/boot/initrd.img-2.6.22-14-xen"
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"
builder = "linux"
extra = "3 xencons=tty"
memory = "96"
name = "fw01"
#uuid = "06ed00fe-1162-4fc4-b5d8-11993ee4a8b9"
cpus = "0"
vcpus = 1
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr1','bridge=xenbr0' ]
disk = [ 'file:/virtual_machines/domains/fw01/fw01_root_ext3.img,sda1,w',
         'file:/virtual_machines/domains/fw01/fw01_swap.img,sda2,w' ]
on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot   = 'restart'
on_crash    = 'restart'

Without the "xencons=tty" added, the last line I get is:

[32793.502372] EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

and there is a reference in the boot messages previous to it that say:

[32790.414362] xencons_init: Initializing xen vfb; pass xencons=tty to prevent 
[32790.415511] Xen virtual console successfully installed as xvc0

My Xen server is not running X; it's just a basic, command-line server 
install.  If I did want to use xvc, is there anything additional that I need 
to configure?

I hope this helps in sorting out the issue...?  TIA!
