I might have seen it but didn't remember it at this time. Thanks for the lead, 
this looks pretty interesting also. Downloading it right now to take a look. 
Deadly slow download though, only getting 77KB/s on average hehe.

My point was simply that I think xen would be adopted more if it had a 
bare-metal install option with gui and all. Doesn't mean that xen needs to 
change in any way but that some folks might consider pulling what ever tools 
might be required to make this happen. This looks like that sort of idea.
