Before I waste too much time on this, has anyone actually got a Xen system running with both Solaris 10 and one or more Linux flavours? I don't care which OS goes in Dom0, and I'd prefer to run the guests fully virtualised if possible. Ideally, I'd like to get a system that runs at least Solaris 10, RHEL 4.4, and RH 7.2.

I've had a quick go at installing FC6 as Dom0, and then trying to install Solaris 10, before finding out about the partition incompatibility. A bit of Googling shows lots of other potential problems, mostly related to UFS (FC6/x86_64 not supporting UFS by default, Linux GRUB not supporting UFS, possible write problems when mounting UFS on Linux, etc).

Thanks -
