Please Ted, save the marketing speak (FREE, NO CHARGE etc.)

Your idea is great, and I honour you... putting together a Dom0 dist
would be cool.

I´m gonna be focusing on getting domU (guests if you will) working. 
I'm quite happy with my dom0 setup (imho you don't set up/trash dom0's
everyday.. that's what the domU's are for).

If you wanna try out a Dom0, install Fedora Core4-test1 or FC3 and
pull Xen in from development.  I've also preordered SuSE 9.3 because
they say they will be packaging Xen functionality there.

Also.. keep in mind Ted, that Xen is in development, breathe through your nose.

peace and love,
