Hi Miles,

This util simply creates a VM and doesn't incorporate any PVM kernels into your VM.

So basically use it to only create HVMs and then if needed like I have, convert the HVM to a PVM.

I actually prefer having control over the HVM to PVM process.

Not sure if I'm using the terminology correctly but;

HVM - hardware virtual machine.
PVM - para virtual machine.

ok.... can you elaborate just a little on how you do that conversion?



In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
