Actually I already managed to try some PV guest installations using
virt-install. Both CentOS 5.3 and Fedora 11 PV domUs installed OK.

(There was a bug in libvirt of F11 dom0 causing virt-viewer to crash when using
Xen 3.4, but after I got that patched it was all fine).

One thing I noticed though: pv_ops dom0 kernel won't 'poweroff'. 

Last lines of output on the console:

Halting system...
Power down.

But it doesn't power down.. this was under Xen 3.4.1.

Oh, OK. I'll try to test those aswell.
