Hi all!

I've got Xen on Debian. It works. I can start another 
console debian as a guest. Fine! 
However this debian can not be the graphical one: 
when I try to start xserver (after proper installation) 
it refuses claiming something about tty consoles. 
Is it meaningfull that in grub there is written tty0?:

title           Xen 3.1-1-i386 / Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.18-5-xen-686
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /boot/xen-3.1-1-i386.gz
module          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-5-xen-686 root=/dev/sda5 ro console=tty0 
acpi=off vga=791
module          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-5-xen-686

I think it would be fine if there existed documentation 
of XM - the main xen managing tool ( but REALLY FULL 
DOCUMENTATION - meaning at least the list off ALL options 
and sub-options and parameters and so on - perhaps 
with additionally comments). 

I am specially interested in installing OS with 
graphical environment like WindowsXP or Debian with XFCE)

I tried qemu (with /dev/kqemu installed) and kvm (with /dev/kvm installed) - 
both too slow - graphics works "almost" quick enough.
I tried vmware, but I can not install it - wrong c compiler version. I do not 
want to change my debian to anything now.

What you think?
