Hi All,

I've noticed that the disc and network performance in my windows 2003 HVM guest is very low compared to the performance achievable by the Dom0. I've read some
references to PV drivers for windows guests but it seems that these PV drivers
are only available with the non-free XenSource products.  Is this true?  Are
the PV drivers open source or do I have to buy XenServer to get a Windows 2003
Server guest to have acceptable performance.

Thanks in advance,
