Rather then a wonderfully sarcastic answer... should more infomration about 
Xen/Windows not be added to the FAQ? Then we can tell users to RTFM or 
wahtever.. but attacking users on the list when it's not clearly documented 
is a little silly.  Perhaps it is in the FAQ, I don't think it was last time 
I looked.
