I installed them the simplest way possible.

 - Find the tools cd image hidden somewhere in Xen Express
 - Mount it via Daemon tools or somethin'
 - Copy all the files to your Windows domU instance
 - Logon to your win domU and install
 - Reboot

And that was that. We are using Windows 2003 server r2 (if that's relevant...).

I second this question. how did you install them? I got a blue screen  
on the Suse drives and the Xen Express drivers, didn't even get  
noticed in the system.

Has there been any talk regarding merging some of the code from  
Virtual Iron back into the main tree to get some of the performances  
benefits. I've used VI and it performs well..
