Hi, I and another student here at CERN consider a project where we implement Xen in a "new" distribution for easy install and with useful preinstalled packages etc. focus to use in a cluster. (A kind of Xen meets Knoppix idea, with grid apps). The project will
be for academic purposes.

Do you think this sounds like a good idea? Which tools and libraries do you think could be useful? Are there any benefits in using Xen in a grid or cluster environment?
