It's set correctly -- I had never done this before, so there was a bit of a 
learning curve.  I practiced on the smp kernel that I usually boot into and 
when I was able to capture everything in minicom there I switched over to 
xen.  If I had gotten no output at all, it would have been suspicious.  
However, I did get output, no characters were garbled, no sentences cut in 
half, etc.

For whatever it's worth, here's the entry in grub:

title Xen-Serial
serial --unit=0 --speed=9600 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal serial
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/xen.gz dom0_mem=131072 com1=115200 noht noreboot
module (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.26-xen0 root=/dev/sda5 ro console=ttyS0

But still, a good point.
