It turns hard to make XEN 3.0 running on my middle-sized server.

Now when XEN 3.0 is released I first successfully put it on several PCs and 
then decided to probe it on SMP and PAE enabled Dell PowerEdge 6800 server. And 
experienced intermittent hangs just after dom0 comes up. The [login:] prompt 
comes up and the server hangs completely for a while and in some 2-10 minutes 
releases just to let me see it is OK and in a few minutes hangs again. 
Everything is hang - the keyboard and the network. When it is released -- 
everything seems fine again. Possibly bugzilla could help me but unfortunately 
the server is under production system and I have not many tries to reboot it.

Soon we probably purchase another Dell 6800 just to start experimenting with 
XEN :)
The machine is big enough to be successfully virtualized: 4 Xeon Processors and 
some 12Gb of memory. So we hope for the best.
