Hi, I'm trying to install a unmodified linux image in my Intel CPU with VMX 
extension (so I won't need a modified guest kernel).

I've found two links about it:

I've read this:

"The following packages need to be installed in order to build Xen with VT 
support. Some Linux distributions do not provide these packages by default.
The dev86 package provides an assembler and linker for real mode 80x86 
instructions. You need to have this package installed in order to build the 
BIOS code which runs in (virtual) real mode."

I can't found "dev86" package in Debian. Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.
