you can start from here:

Furthermore, if you want to create a domU from a CD you may:
- use the .iso image file of the installation CD
disk = [ 'file:/path/to/gentoo-domU.img,hda,w',
'file:/path/to/gentoo.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

- use the cdrom
disk = [ 'file:/path/to/gentoo-domU.img,hda,w', 'phy:/dev/cdrom,hdc:cdrom,r']

And I suggest to use the new xl toolstack, not the old one xm.
