You just need to "apt-get install libc6-xen" if you are running i386
arch, you don't need it if you are running a 64 bits distro (eg: amd64).
It wont cause any trouble to do it.

That is because by default loopbacks are limited in number (8 maximum,
unless you change de default).

You wont be able to mount more than 8 file loopbacks then. But anyway,
it's a lot better to use LVM if you can: it's a lot faster.

Sure there is. Try dtc-xen and dtc:


Don't use the Ubuntu version though, as it's quite outdated. You might
want to try our Git version as well that has lot's of improvements.
