Ay - pxe-boot with xen (dom0 AND domU) and also kvm running fine. I make
heavy use of this and it works fine - net-booting your dom0 and domus is
really cool ;)

I think your problem is your bridge.

Could you please post your bridge-config.

auto xyz
iface xyz inet static
       bridge_ports eth0
        bridge_fd 0
        bridge_hello 2
       bridge_maxage 12
        bridge_stp off

the brdige_fd is a MUST-HAVE otherwise it _wont_ work.

works like a charm.
