Is there any other installation howto then the short text file http://www.fsmware.com/xenofreebsd/5.3/xenbsdsetup.txt also then this instructions http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-users/2005-09/msg00187.html ?

What i am looking for is something like a short step by step instruction for setup FreeBSD as domU on a NetBSD dom0.

Does only FreeBSD 5.3 work as a domU? What about FreeBSD 6.0? Is xen support part of the FreeBSD 6.0 Release?

Should it be possible to setup FreeBSD 6.0 as domU like NetBSD as domU the way the howto of NetBSD describes (http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/xen/howto.html)? Is there a special FreeBSD kernel (like freebsd-domU and freebsd-instll)
to create it? Which NetBSD Version/Release to use (-current)?

thanks for information
