I have a Windows 2003 domU that is using a sparse image file for drive
c. Using virt-manager I created another sparse image file and added it.
I booted the domU and it does not see it.

So I shut down the domU and modified the config for it. I made this

disk=[ 'file:/var/lib/xen/images/server1/disk0.img,hda,w', ]
disk=[ 'file:/var/lib/xen/images/server1/disk0.img,hda,w','file:/var/lib/xen/images/server1/disk1.img,hdb,w' ]

The windows 2003 domU still does not see the extra disk. The disk1.img
file is there.

What am I missing?

You need to initialize the drive in Windows.

right click My Computer --> Manage --> Storage --> Disk Management

Windows will give you a wizard to initialize the QEMU device (Drive 1)
and then you can format it with a partition and drive letter.
