I too am curious about these exact questions. I am new to both Linux and Xen 
though. I can say I have used vmware for these same platforms in your exact 
scenario with an iSCSI san but am wanting to move to Xen for cost reasons. If 
you find the answers to these questions off list, kindly update the thread as I 
am anxiously awaiting direction from experienced users myself :)
