I am already using one processor on dom0 and only 4 GB of ram, out of my 127.
But Novell, when asked, said officially that it would not make much difference.
I open a ticket and asked the question. The helped me but dismissed all claims
that it works. Go figure.

I don't think so that you are spending more money on it than our hosting
company. We will go live by August, after one year of designing,
testing, benchmarking and evaluating VMware and HyperV as two
alternative platforms next to Xen for our customers.
That you cannot get your pathetic Windows machines working, I think we
can all blame Microsoft for their cooperation. Although I'm very happy
that Xen exists I have seen it fail too with the GPL drivers, with SMP etc.
You are trolling because you come to a list, start to cry, but don't do
anything that anyone suggest. Disable SMP... then you are set. And it
might be uneasy to accept, but Windows will run faster on Xen without
SMP. It gets even more interesting. Disabling SMP on Dom0 and
hardlimiting its memory is the way to go. I can do some consulting for
you if you want, but if you want to go HyperV/VMware, please have fun.
HyperV will give probably paravirtualization on Windows, that might be
as stable as 2008. And I hate to say it, but probably the only way to
get remotely stable, because someone (the inventor) is backing you on it.
