Re: [Xen-users] Install from CD

Henning, sorry for sending directly to you, I didn't pay attention to the To:

Thanks for the help Henning. So the first example you gave is for processor
virtualization using the new AMD and Intel chips, correct? At this time I don't
have one of these chips but maybe Christmas will be kind to me.

The second example sounds like what I am running, so let me see if I understand
this. I simply make and LVM and then boot the install cd for the distro and
install it into the LVM. Copy the /lib/modules/2.6.<kernel> to my new installs
/lib/modules. then create a config file for xen to boot.

The above is how I thought it should work but was unsure, did I understand what
I was reading correctly or have I completely missed the mark?

Thanks again Henning,
