I'm planing to use Xen 3.2 hypervisor packaged on the newly ubuntu release
(hardy), for that my plan is to:

I've one Intel Core2Duo with VT Support and i want to use a Windows XP
(for gaming purposes) virtualized. I have a Nvidia PCIe GPU and i'm
thinking to delegate it to the W$ domU. But i'm seeing that this troubles
with happen:

If i hide the GPU to domain0, then i won't be able to use domain0 as my
desktop, because Xorg will fail... i think so.

I'm thinking as a solution, to try using video board for domain0... don't
know if this will work. :(

BTW, because of using Full-virtualization on the W$ domU, do i will have
perfomance problems playing games? I know this depends also in the amount
of memory that domU will use, the number of micro assigned , the game i
will play, but, take this example:

1GB of ram for this domU and MS Flight Simulator 2004. :)

Thanks in advance!
