I'm in the process of writing a book about xen, based on my experiences as a consultant and as a provider of xen virtual private servers.

Anyhow, the book is targeting the intermediate Linux SysAdmin, and assumes no previous Xen knowledge. We went through a "how-to" chapter tonight, using a CentOS5 Dom0 and an arbitrary (slackware with a XenSource kernel) DomU. (next we will be trying the slack and debian Dom0s.)

anyhow, we can get it working, but it is still largely a "black box" for us. Considering our audience and the level of this book, to some extent that is acceptable, but certainly a bit of knowledge of what goes on in this black box would be useful.

Is there any available documentation for pygrub that is higher-level than the pygrub sources themselves? specifically, I am wondering if pygrub copies the kernel to the Dom0 or if it just kexec's it within the DomU.
