Re: [Xen-users] Newbie trying to understand how to get Xen working

I appreciate your response, basicly where I work they expect me to learn
as I go. The first project they had me do was get Drupal working on ubuntu
server with no gui, when I barely knew any linux commands at all, I
learned alot more linux commands.

now I have xen installed, and my hardware does support full
virtualization, you already made things alot more clear for me just by
bringing that up, as i didnt realize the difference. I'm going to see what
i can find about it, any advice would be appreciated though.
