Hi Mark

A "uname -a" indicates that your are running a xen domU, if it is a PV domU. A "ls /boot" would indicate the same. Of course you could change the name of the kernel. In a HVM domU probably you do not need since you are using a kernel without modifications
A "more /etc/fstab" can also indicate that the devices being used are xenified (depends on your configuration). I for example, use /dev/xvda1 as my partition, to not forget that its a Xen box ;-)

Probably there are other ways to check it ...

  A newbie question about Xen DOMU:

I have a Linux Fedora running in a Xen DOMU. Is it possible for somebody
accessing this DOMU from outside (ssh) to know that it is not
a real machine but a DOMU of Xen (by something like uname,etc)? In
case it is possible
I would appreciate if anybody can tell how.
