The above is correct.  To keep thins simpler, once the appropriate images 
(base, swap, etc.), are copied to the appropriate directory, I rename them to 
"root.img", "swap.img", etc., so it's fairly generic.

My config files were actually quite the same as the ones generated by XenMan, 
so we're actually all good there (I don't use any of the "obscure" parameters 
or such).  The only difference is that I have to edit the file to reflect the 
actual path of the various VM images (I attached a sample one anyway)

Since all my VMs are controllable via XenMan now, that is the current format 
of my config files.

Additionally, if I need a seperate additional disk, I copy over an empty 
filesystem image I have and name it appropriately (e.g., if it was for 
"/home" then I rename the file to "home.img")

Yes, I use the networking scripts/configuration of the particular system I am 
setting up (Ubuntu, Mandriva, etc.) and do not use the config file.
