You have to newfs the partition and then extract at least base.tgz and
etc.tgz to it.  You'll also have to configure a few things like:
(it's easiest to mount wd0i and then chroot to it to make the changes)
- /etc/fstab
  inside the new domain wd0i appears as wd0 with partitions wd0a and wd0d,
  you'll want to use wd0a as root:
  /dev/wd0a / ffs rw 1 1
- /etc/rc.conf
  you need to configure the network:
  and enable sshd:
- /etc/ssh/sshd_conf
  you probably want to enable PermitRootLogin
- set a password or install a ssh authorized_key in /root/.ssh

Hope I didn't forget anything...

Did you add the alias to domain0's xennet0 interface?
It is needed for xen_read_console and you should run xen_read_console
in the background or in another window before starting the domain as
it will only show new output.  What gets output when you run
xc_dom_create.py and what options are you using?
