This is wrong.  For paravirtualized guests, you want to use xvda1 and
xvda2.  Also, you want to use tap:aio, otherwise you will corrupt your
guest disks if the dom0 crashes.  So your disk line really wants to look
like:

disk =
['tap:aio:/xen/fedora/football.img,xvda1,w','tap:aio:/xen/fedora/football.swap,xvda2,w']

It might be easier, though, just to use virt-install and/or virt-manager
to install your guests; they take care of these details for you.
