Sorry if this is noise.  I have used xen in the past, went to vmware,
and now want to try xen again.  I have a Lenovo W510.  I will be
running Ubuntu server 11.04 (unless everyone here agrees that Debian
6.01 is better!  *grin*)

I just did a search for ubuntu and xen as well as natty and xen, and
the most authoritative documentation I found was:


I know with the recent kernel changes, things are in flux.  What is
the best way to run xen on ubuntu/debian?

My preference is to use something that's packaged, but I do prefer to
use the current release of xen...  Do I, or don't I have to recompile
the current kernel in 11.04?

Also - how does truecrypt affect this whole setup...? :)
