Yes. However, I have been away from Xen for a few months. I have lost
track of which kernel I was using before. I know that it worked fine on
my graphics card with no changes to the default (non-Xen) configuration.

I tried adding nomodeset, but that did not help by itself. I ended up
doing the following:

1. Add nomodeset to kernel command line.

2. Create an xorg.conf that uses the VESA driver (X -configure, edit).

3. Deactivate dri2 and dri in xorg.conf.

4. Boot Xen Dom0 kernel into runlevel 3.

5. rmmod nouveau; init 5.

This works (of course, the VESA driver is not optimal).
