[Xen-users] Using the Xen GPLPV drivers

There seems to be an outdated page to use PV drivers here: 

I'd be great if that could be updated.

After installing the PV drivers in windows I didn't notice any difference in performance at all.  Windows says the drivers are working.
Some more searching and reading and it appears that I do actually need to make some changes to my windows config file.

So, I changed my disk line from: 
  disk = [ 'tap2:tapdisk:aio:/home/xen/xenwin7.img,hda,w']
  disk = [ 'tap2:tapdisk:aio:/home/xen/xenwin7.img,xvda,w' ]

According to the windows experience index disk performance is now several points better!

I've also changed the line:
   vif = [ 'type=ioemu, bridge=xenbr0' ]
   vif = [ '' ]

Is this all I need to do to fully enable PV drivers?
