    Not sure if you can do it directly from Xen, but if you have a vmware install, the script that enables you to mount a vmware disk to the linux filesystem and then you should be able to access it like any other mount.

    It depends. If this VM disk is in the dom0 you can't hotplug it because you would cause a violation of a privileged space. A domU can never ever access dom0 space. Instead, you can edit the conf file of the VM you want to allow access to the windows VM, to make it see that disk as nother device. Anyway, you have to reboot the VM to make it aware of hte new disk.
