Some more related pages:

Also there's something completely new that we should document:
How to install Xen VMs! which means document all the relevant methods:
boot the native distro installer as PV guest, as HVM guest, xen-tools, virt-install,
debootstrap, rpmstart, etc..

That's something people ask about very often..

After working through a bunch of the pages I think we are going to have to have a realtime collab session to decide on some way of reorganising everything into categories.
