FreeBSD DomU you mean? :) There's no FreeBSD dom0 support. > This all shows that getting a dom0 up and running can be a challenge if > you're not Linux literate.

The way is simple: * grab centos 5.3, i386 edition (i've not tried the 64 bit stuff) * you uncheck all the package groups except "base", including "dial up networking" and "text" internet * (this means you only need CD 1, not all 6.) * Install the base system * reboot, make sure everything is fine, run "yum update", fiddle with things as needed * Then "yum install xen" * make sure /boot/grub/menu.lst is set to boot xen automatically. That is basically it ;) There's other stuff to do (such as figuring out how to drive their networking scripts) but the default "bridged" eth0 is perfectly fine for basic testing. I had trouble with my recentish intel desktop motherboard(s) - I had to boot the installer and normal kernel with 'acpi=off' but -not- boot Xen with that.
