I gain my first experiences with XEN on a CentOS 5 System. Unfortunately the
whole system crashed this night. Because I'm not at work today, I cannot
say, what's the reason for the crash.

The creation of centos-guests worked fine (using the tool virt-install that
comes with this distribution). I had problems running a debian sarge guest,
because the xen-initrd was not built with xenblk an xennet support. I don't
know, why the guys from fedora/redhat/centos didn't fix this until now.

I will try xen on etch the next days.
