I figured as much, but just thought I'd ask. The new drivers
do seem to work, but there doesn't appear to be any direct
way to install them so I can boot from virtio without taking
a round-about approach.
While it isn't any simpler, but you can probably do something using
guestfish and virt-win-reg. Extract the driver from the floppy disk
image using guestfish:
$ guestfish --ro -a viostor-31-03-2010-floppy.img
<fs> mount /dev/sda /
<fs> ll /i386/WinXP

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 8576 Apr 5 03:14 viostor.sys
<fs> download /i386/WinXP/viostor.sys /tmp/viostor.sys
and use the same registry editing technique that we use in virt-v2v to
install the driver:
