I am installing my first XEN based Centos 5.x machine. I want to
manage it from my laptop, which is a Macbook, running a vitual Centos
5 under Parallels. I selected Convirture (www.convirture.com) as my
GUI based mgmt tool but I see that it installs a XEN based kernel as
part of its dependencies.

1. I assume that a XEN kernel would require hardware interaction and
so would not run in a virtualized environment like Parallels. Am I
2. If so, can someone suggest a GUI based tools that does not require
xen to be installed on the machine managing XEN servers on the
network, so that I can use my virtualized Linux on the Macbook.
3. How do I install a non-GUI based XEN server that can run Linux
Desktop in virtual mode, in addition to other machines? I mean Dom0
should be minimal possible.

Please advise asap, so I can install my first XEN ;-)

With best regards and thanks in advance.
