I hope I can resume my Xen experiments

My experiments on Xen was stopped a few months ago since the amd64 machine that I was working on was needed by the company.

Fortunately, I now have two CPUs sitting at my desk right now. I'll be installing Kubuntu on the other CPU so that I can use it for "official" work. I've been using it as a prototype box for our network appliance, but I figured that I can maxmize its use by using VMWare instead (hence the decision to use Kubuntu, even though NetBSD already has a stable Xen support; VMWare doesn't have a native port for BSD). Since the prototype will now be running inside VMWare, I can now use Xen kernel for the host OS. Weeeee...
