You're using a somewhat old version of Xen. I know that on RHEL's Xen
version (3.1+ with lots of backports) and Xen 3.3.1, WinXP
installation works fine, so I suggest you try upgrading your Xen

You probably should change "file:" with "tap:aio:", for data
consistency and performance reasons. Also you might want to remove
"ioemu:" from disk and vif line if you want to use GPLPV drivers later
(to drastically improve performance).
Both should work with the Xen versions I mentioned, but I haven't
tested it on vanilla Xen 3.1.
You can enable this if you experince mouse pointer problems.
