Correct; no dom0 support.

You mean it's a disk image with no partition table and bootloader?

So, you're booting the guest by specifying a kernel and initrd along
with the disk image?

If so, you should be able to do exactly the same with KVM - you'll just
need to manually create a suitable initrd using whatever method you used
to create the original initrd for Xen.

But no, I don't know of any good docs describing how to migrate xen
guests to KVM ... it'd be very cool if someone could write something up
on fedoraproject.org/wiki as they go through the process, though ...
