With Xen 3.1 you could just (possibly at the expense of some performance) get 
dom0 to export the domain's paravirt framebuffer device over VNC.  This 
avoids you having to configure the VNC in each guest.

Or you can configure and SDL frontend so that when you start the domain a 
window will open on dom0's display, giving you a "virtual display" to 
interact with directly.

If you're running VNC in the guest, the IP address should be that of the 
guest.  If you ever configure dom0 to export the display, then you'd instead 
want to use the IP address of dom0.
