I think there's a live CD on the website although I'm not sure if it's for 
3.0.3 rather than the latest release.

I'm not sure if the system is designed for extension or not.  The logical 
thing to do is arguably to run any "extras" in domains and keep the dom0 
minimal and close to the supplied setup.  I don't actually know about the 
XenSource product so I don't know to what extent they allow customisation.

My guess at the base distro would be debian, but that's just a suspicion.

The Xensource forums can probably provide more useful answers than I can - 
this list is mostly full of open source Xen users, rather than users of 
XenEnterprise and friends.


Dave: Just a question. What use is a unicyle with no seat?  And no pedals!
Mark: To answer a question with a question: What use is a skateboard?
Dave: Skateboards have wheels.
Mark: My wheel has a wheel!
