Yes. I'm using Xen 3.0.3 from Debian stable repositories. Should I
install 3.0.4? I'm using 3.0.2 in a productive environment with
GNU/Linux SMP guests and these works fine, but this guests works in
paravirtualized mode. Maybe the problem with SMP support is on full
virtualization mode.

Thanks for speedy reply.
