Should be valid enough for the install. x86_64 bit system required.
The install is similar to an install of a Linux distro.



Thank you.  Valid enough has value especially for professionals.  My
concern is that the new install will have configuration options that
were not available 3 years ago.  I am trying to hedge my lack of
experience with Linux by finding documentation that will support my
understanding of the configuration options.  

Is there documentation that will help my understanding the XCP options,
and for that matter Linux and Xen options?

I have read two books on Xen, 2 and 3 years old.  None of these address
XCP.  I am hoping for something that will help me understand how to

As a secondary note, the 3 year old 'Xen Cloud Platform Installation
Guide', says that XCP should be the only OS - no multi-boot.  Is there a
fundamental purpose for this or is it an artifact of a particular
installation process?
