I'm familar with XEN and running it on the SUSE and RH distros. The problem I have is building guest kernel's. To run a XEN guest you need the guest os to either 1) have the XEN linux kernel extensions or 2) you need hardware virtualization support.
As I don't have #2 I need to modify puppy such that it uses the Xen kernel instead of the regular kernel. The problem is that I don't know exactly what that entails. The puppy linux stuff has a fairly tweaked kernel so it's not something that is easy to replace. I was wondering if anyone had tried this or understood it enough to give me a heads up on the best way to go about it.

Since latest kernel is near vanilla--might not be that hard to compile a xen-kernel with the correct patches for puppy. Barry talks about boulding the latest puppy kernel being quite simple these days. I compiled a xen kernel for ttylinux but nothing more elaborate yet. There's a vmware project going on now as well.
