Hi All,

I've been reading up here, out of curiosity, (http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/OpenSolarisPVonLinux) on running OpenSolaris 2008/05 as a PVM.  I'm currently running CentOS 5.2 x64_86 and Xen 3.2.1 on a server and was wondering if I wanted to install a PVM instance of say, Ubuntu 8.04 from a DVD ISO, (instead of HVM) what would the steps be required to do so?
