I'm still to fresh in installing XEN so I need to first base on some
working example form the installation CD or someone tutorials. This will
probably be hard form my to setup XEN 3.1 manually.

I suspecting this...but I think that there is more such newbie as I and
thy success with some strict distribution, and have the know path to do

I will try it, after I restore some working installation...my defiantly
crash now after I try install XEN 3.0.4 from tgz on my openSuse
installation :)

Thanks for the information and some routes... I will notice if I establish
working solution...while I found that in the net its is very hard to find
the answers for the XEN question as you are newbie.
