I've a xen 3.3.1 running with a windows server 2003.

Our computer is a dell poweredge 2900 with 48gb  of ram and two intel xeon X5470  @ 3.33GHz. However  we use a raid 1+0 but you dont should have problems because this.

Anyway  I've had to compile the kernel source for my sas raid controller.

we'll start virtualization with Xen in our company and we're looking for the
right distribution. The most important Servers in DomUs are working with a
MS OS (Win2000/2003/2008). I've read something about to accelerate Windows
with paravirtual drivers in some distributions. Other distributions have
specific tools to install and support DomUs. And now I'm really confused.

I need a distribution to run fast and stable Windows Servers. It should be
easy to do the daily administration job for an experienced Linux system
administrator. The distribution should support the hardware in an HP
ProLiant ML350 G5 (Intel Xeon) with Raid 5 and shouldn't waste hardware

Is there a distribution that fulfills these requirements?
