I've been looking around for information on how to size out a Xen machine.  I don't have any experience with Xen (making this a bit harder) and my old server is 512MB, and Xen won't let me install a domU since I don't have enough RAM.  :-/

Anyway, I'm looking at a MythTV, database, webserver, fileserver, workstation, abd source code repository on my home server.  About 6 virtual machines is what I think I'm seeing.  The most intensive one will be the MythTV server.  I'm guessing 4 cores and about 4GB plus a crap load of disk.  But, I'm pulling numbers out of my backside.  Will I want more?  Xeon vs Core2 -- will that matter?  I assume I'll want 64 bit?

I haven't spotted anything to assist, but I'm sure its out there.

Any help would be appreciated!
