Re: [Xen-users] a new server for Xen

Thanks for that. What about a VT-supported cpu to do the para-virtualization
instead of full-virtualization? which one is better.

ps: just wondering, if I copy one guest system image file from one xen
server to another xen server, does that work? VMware does, I don't know xen
could or not, cause it seems the drivers may be missing.

many thanks. sorry about my english
