Hello all,

I am currently running Ubuntu Gutsy AMD64 as my dom0 and planning to have the following domUs:

[1] Debian Etch AMD64
[2] CentOS 5 AMD64
[3] MS Windows XP 32bit

My question are the following:

[1] Is it possible that for domU [1] and [2] (above) to use their own stock kernel and not using dom0's kernel?
[2] Any tips you can share on how to install different GNU/Linux distributions as the domUs?
[3] Can I install MS Windows XP 32bit as domU even if my hardware is an AMD64 machine?
[4] Can I make use of the CD-ROM drive, sound card and USB ports from the MS Windows XP 32bit domU?

Please advice.

Thank you in advance.
