This question is more appropriate in xen-users, so I'm posting the reply there.

There are several ways to have GUI in PV domU. You can have a virtual
frame buffer using something like this on domU config file:

vfb=[ "type=vnc,vncunused=1,vnclisten=" ]

... and you can connect to domU's "GUI" using "xm vncviewer" (or start
vnc viewer directly).

However, IMHO it's easier (and also better) to just install NX free
edition/freenx/xrdp on domU, and connect with their respective client
from a remote machine.
