So I guess this means I should have installed Windows XP in a virtual
SCSI drive. Ok, I changed my 'disk' line to

disk = [ 'file:/Data/xen/bat-xp-scsi.img,ioemu:sda,w', 
'file:/Data/iso/windows-xp.iso,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

and started the virtual machine on an empty bat-xp-scsi.img file.
The Windows setup comes up, but complains that there is no hard
disk installed in my computer.
Is there anything else I need to configure to have Windows see
an SCSI drive?
