That's a cool configuration you're working on ;-)

The xenU configuration specifically doesn't support any real physical 
hardware.  If you want a domain to drive real devices you should boot it with 
a xen0 kernel (and modules).

Please clarify: are you saying that dom0 has a USB keyboard?  and that when 
you reboot dom1 or dom2 the server freezes?  what makes you think this hasgot 
to do with the keyboard?  Does Dom0 not even respond to pings on the ethernet 
interfaces *it* controls?
