@Mike: I think the main issue is that Jason thinks Xen is a drop-in
replacement for vmware workstation. It's not.

@Jason: You can try the live cd, but IMHO it's not worthed. Looking at
your questions, it seems you'd be better off with virtualbox or
vmware. Seriously.

Yes, that is seriously my confusion. Xen being a drop-in replacement for VmWare. I supposed I have misinformation.

And here I was hoping for a dream! I mean wouldn't it be a fantastic setup? The ability to boot ones machine, have other OS's running along side each other, interact with them on a modern laptop that has the space and RAM to accomodate it. switch back and forth between your environments with ease.

I wish I could put my development skills to use on something interesting and awesome.
