Various people have managed to get 3D acceleration working in dom0 (which is 
the closest Xen has to the "host" operating system, and it owns the display 
by default).

I suspect that if you want to use this machine as a desktop / laptop that 
you'll find one of the non-hypervisor solutions (one of the free VMware 
flavours) or qemu / kqemu / kvm less hassle to get up and running (although 
the theoretically highest performance probably still comes from running 
paravirtualised Linux on Xen).
