Just  a newbee question looking Xen from a long time and now ready to make the 

I need : answers and confirmations.
I offer : documentation on this case.
My aim : beeing a true nomad.

My simple case is : 

First ) I need to show clients applications that work only on MicroS and I 
want to use multiple Linux tailored environments for management and 

Second ) I want to work on the linux part not only on my professinal laptop 
but also on other P6 desktops without needing to reconfigure all. Let's say 
have the domains>1 on a mobile hard drive.

May simple question is :

How ?

May simple approach is :

MicroS ... Wait that Xen is public for the 2003 server...
But I can't wait then I will use a First Primary Partition in 2003 Server with 
VMWare that will laucnh the different environment I need for my commercial 

Set-up a Second Primary Partition (then Grub) with a minimal Xen dom0  (which 
one ? ttylinux or Yosper ? or Gentoo ?)
Is it possible to remove the Linux distrib after the xen patch ? Let's say 
better if I have something that install the Xen Domain 0 that all.

and after all that install my other distribs specific environment 
(Management / Mono Develop / Rebol Develop / Database mini server) on a data 
partition of a Mobile disk.

If I need to change of hardware I just need to rebuild the MicroS environment 
and the Domain0. Is it possiblr to have it on a usb mobile drive too or a CD 
(a tiny domain0 can be completed loaded in Memory) ? Let's say...I have a 
MicroS laptop cause I can't do nothing else and I have a CD to boot to my 
complete environment in a Mobile HD...completly nomad and I can work 
everywhere a CPU is available...
