Not tried any of these as fully virtual guests.  However, I'd like to note 
that Minix was ported (at least partially) to Xen by Ivan Kelly.  I think he 
targetted Xen 2 originally, but he was certainly interested in knowing Xen 3 
stuff at the time.

OpenBSD has been ported to run on Xen 3, but I'm not sure what the status of 
that port is.

Plan 9's own website includes a howto for getting Plan 9 natively running on

The port was updated for Xen 3 (non-PAE), I have a working install here which 
I access using Linux drawterm (a Linux implementation of the plan9 network 
display thingy) - seems fine.


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
