I'm not sure if VHD is (or will be) supported with Xen. Someone else might be
able to answer that question.
But why not look into using LVM and COW (Copy-On-Write) volumes?
This would allow you to create a base image and link the Guests to COW-volumes
based on this image.
The end result would be the same and LVM is a proven technology.
