     Why would you be using grub when you're keeping the kernel
outside the NetBSD partition.  All you need to do is add:

kernel = "<path to kernel>"

to your domU config.  xentools is fully capable of loading a NetBSD
kernel, including one that is gzipped.  An example from one of my
config files is:

kernel = "/usr/pkg/etc/xen/kernels/netbsd-7-XEN3_DOMU.gz"

This is not something that should be dependent on your dom0 as
xentools is supplied by the Xen project.
