Using the PV tools with Xen 3.0.4 (heavily patched by Novell) seems to work okay for me - definitely no bad effects on the physical host.  The XP guests don't always boot correctly with the /GPLPV option for me, but no crashing the host.

I'm using hypervisor 3.1.2 (Debian package), and I've heard that 3.2
works too. 3.0.x hypervisor didn't work last time I tried it, in fact it
caused the whole physical machine to reboot.
