I've done something similar, but with a Linux distribution (Alpine
Linux), you can find more info here:


It's a very minimal Dom0 LiveCD (80MB), that contains a very basic
Linux system (uclibc + busybox) plus the necessary tools to run xen.
It's quite fast, because it runs from ram. It's still a beta test, but
we will probably start releasing this Dom0 LiveCDs with each Alpine
Linux release starting from the 1st of April (approximate scheduled
release date of the next version).

I would also like to do something similar with NetBSD, but that will
require some work.
