I am not making the difference if you are working on the guest that
already exists or you are making a new one. I just want to point that
you have to spawn vncserver on domU, listening on ID port(or manual
port) that dom0 has it. And if you have concern installing vncserver
on the dom0 itself, that is another story. Thats another vncserver
running on domU itself.

In short words I think that you have to enable sdl and vnc graphics on
your guest start if you want to use any graphics on that guest at all.
Those are two basic approaches for managing guests in xen. You also
may use X forwarding, Freenx, rdesktop(only for Windows guests), PCI
Device Assignment(for more read in Prentice Hall - Running Xen, A
Hands On Guide to the Art of Virtualization).
