Hi Markus,
I'm afraid this is probably going to be disappointing news, but so far as I'm 
aware this doesn't work - due to the changes required for the Xen kernel. The 
one ray of hope is there is a page:
which seems to imply that it can work. I don't have an nVidia system set up 
with Xen at the moment, but I know of colleagues who have tried to follow 
these instructions and not been able to get it to work. Hopefully you have 
better luck.
