 Hello everyone,
 I've been trying to enter the Xen virtualization world but I have several doubts on paravirtualization. Recently I found this link in Novell site saying that Suse Ent 10 SP1 will support paravirtualization on Windows Longhorn (asume that is referring to Windows Vista and Server 2008)... I installed that Suse version with Xen, but when I create the virtual machine, the paravirtualization comes unavailable for all Windows guests.
 Also I found that exists the Virtual Machine Driver Pack for SUSE Ent 10 SP1 to use on non-modified OS, like Windows 2003, to achieve paravirtualization on the devices installing special drivers on the guests machines. None of those drivers works on Windows 2008.
 Anyone tried paravirtualization with Windows 2008 as guest?? Is there any driver available??
 Thanks in advance!!
