I had some problems with Dapper Drake but never dom0 freezing; I had a
broken dd, some missing or broken packages, a missing hvmloader binary
in Xen 3.0 binaries and a hvmloader makefile issue in Xen 3.0.2
sources; the hvmloader problems were solved compiling Xen testing and
all problems concerning WinXP domU were related to missing sdl
packages or domU configuration.

I was running Xen on a AMD X2 with 2 GB RAM, 1 GB for dom0 and 512 MB
for WinXP domU. I wrote all what I did step by step here:

Where are you trying to install WinXP? To a disk partition, to an
image file? Maybe the partition is already mounted in dom0?
