    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?

Please don't top post.

If Ubuntu 8.04 DVD ISO won't work on XEN, which Ubuntu will then?

Any of them should operate, *in full virftualization mode*. It's paravirtualization that takes a fairly customized kernel.
