Re: [Xen-users] Question about xen tools ....

> What is ioemu and how is it used in the context of xen?

Ioemu provides software simulations of common PC devices (network cards, disk 
controllers, etc.).  It is based on the device code in the Bochs emulator 

Ioemu is used only on machines with Intels' Vanderpool extensions (you can't 
buy them yet).  It is required for full virtualisation of guests that haven't 
been ported to run on Xen, to provide them with the illusion of a complete 
set of PC devices.
