I'm new to virtualization and this list.  I have started investigating
Xen for what may be an unusual application.

We have a single-user, dual-monitor product that runs under Solaris 10
x86 that would like to have r/w-access to a file created by an
application running under Windows XP.   XP and its app are hidden to
the user, and require access to a USB port.

Can Xen support this configuration?   I'm assuming I would need to run
both Solaris and Windows as guests.  I realize that this is a very
general question, but I'm trying to get a handle on whether there are
any obvious roadblocks to the approach as I dig deeper.  For example,
with some preliminary searching of this list I notice there may be
problems with sharing folders between guests.

Thanks in advance for any comments.
