NetBSD is very nice.  It's also very convenient to install as a domU, since
you can just boot a NetBSD/xen installer kernel and do a regular install
under Xen (you don't have to generate a partition image manually).  Also
you can dedicate it just one block device and sub-partition that, which is,
AFAIK, not possible with Linux (you have to give Linux three block devices
if you want three partitions).
