Re: [Xen-users] how to use prebuilt images from jailtime.org?

I'm running Centos 5.1 x64 as the base server OS (Dom0), with several
centos 5.1 x64 pv-machines and one windows server 2003 32bit fully
virt. machine (DomU's).

My hardware is a single xeon 5405 (quad core) with 8g of ram and a
small sata soft-raid array which I've setup with LVM.   I might as
well add that I love using LVM with XEN, it is ten times better than
VMware Server's loopback filesystem.  It's very easy to create new
space for a vm, and the disk responsiveness seems very much improved
as well.   My only drawback at this time is soft-raid doesn't handle
multi user IO requests very well, the disk array gets swamped pretty
easy when multiple VMs are trying to read/write at the same time.

 As matter of interest, what Server OS are you using, and what VPS OS are
you using?

 I'm trying to get 32bit VPS OS's work on CentOS 5.1 x64. This is something
I can't get working. On a previous server, I have CentOS 5.1 x64 with the
default Xen3.1 from the CentOS repositories, and the only other OS I could
get installed was CentOS 5.1 x64 from a local CentOS 5.1 x64 repository.


May I ask how you got the Windows 32bit installed? I only have a Windows XP 32bit CD right now, but would love to get a Windows server running.
