Hi folks,

I'm about to install Xen on a donated colo server for a "good
cause".  The hardware hasn't been bought yet and I need to spec it.
As it's a donation it's vitally important that I get fully
Xen-compatible hardware first time.  It would also be nice if it was
cheap. ;)

It's been about 6 months since I last installed Xen and that was on
a P4 machine.  How's amd64 support coming along?  Is it wise at this
stage to pick an amd64-based server?

If staying 32-bit then how is PAE support?  My P4 machine has 2GB
RAM so I get to see it all, but if I specced a 32-bit machine with
4GB am I going to be able to see it all?

I'm in UK and will be hosting same place as xensource.com.  What
hardware do you guys use?

Anyone using Dell SC1425s?
