For the SUSE Linux Professional products there's installation support,
which includes phone and email support to get a standard machine up
and running with Linux and the standard HW components working.
Xen is not covered by installation support.

When SUSE Linux Professional customers report issues we try to address 
them as our time allows and where we are interested.

Real support is only provided for the enterprise products, where we
have offerings with guaranteed response times etc. 
So from this perspective, the whole SUSE Linux Professional product
is "unsupported", where we can not make any such promises.

Currently there is
a) Installation into directory
b) bootloader config support

The RPMs include some "how to get started" docu and a script to quickly
set up an unprivileged domain for testing.
I don't know how far Gerd got around to test the uml-utilities for
setting up domains and networking.

This would be the most tedious work many users.

You'll have to wait a few more weeks until the product is out,
unfortunately. Until then, I hope you'll test my RPMs for 
SUSE Linux 9.2 :-)
I update them regularly. A xen-2.0.5 will be there later today,
the 2.0-testing which is there at the moment is from last tuesday.
