> But can a domU run in a partition?

I run 2.0.7 and run dom0 off a reiser partition and two domUs off
separate partitions (both ext3) (*). I have grub installed in all the
paritions and each system has its own swap space. I need to look
at the documentation to see whether I can just use one swap space
hierarchy between all the systems... heck, I need to look at the
documentation properly to see what I can play with (I'm coming from a
z/VM environment).


(*) Strange setup's due to a strange box that hangs on the more recent
frankenkernels from things like OSS/SUSE 10 but luckily seems to run
the Xen 2.0.7 setup well enough (having switched a bunch of things like
acpi & dma off which I have to do anyway on the normal Linux boot).
