I finally have Xen working on a system at home. I hadnt expected this to be very difficult, but apparently Xen doesnt like my new Athlon 64 system
(bought mostly for running Xen). Theyll fix it eventually, but for now
Im using an old Athlon 700 system that I had sitting around. It needed
a new CPU fan (just try finding Slot A fans these days!), but
I was able to scrounge up 512 MB of RAM and an 80 GB hard drive, so
its perfectly usable.
I built a couple quick disk images and booted them under Xen, and
everything worked as expected. This is always a good sign, and it
suggests that Ill be able to make progress on my little virtual-server
project without a whole lot of trouble.
