  • Thread-topic: Convert HVM to paravirtualized guest

        We are just starting to work with Xen and so far have been
pleased with the results.  The host system is running Fedora Core 6 with
all of the latest kernel/xen updates.  
        One of our first projects was to create an HVM guest using an LV
based disk for the guest.  It originally started out as a Fedora Core 3
system, but has been upgraded using network updated to Fedora Core 6.  I
believe we would see performance gains converting this guest system over
to a paravirtualized guest.  Searching Google has not really told me if
this is possible and if so, what the steps would be to accomplish this. 
        Has anybody done anything like this and if so can you outline
the necessary steps to make this work?  Thanks!
