Apparently it doesn't :-D

It'd be really great if you can get it to work. Sun released their own
PV driver (still in alpha, I think), but it's not as widely-tested as yours.

Yes. RHEL5 PV domU (both 32 and 64bit, using Redhat's kernel-xen) runs
on opensolaris dom0.

Let's see. A long time ago I tried XP with 0.9.11-pre4, BSOD with
Installation completed, but booting with /gplpv gets me that.
I just tried W2k3 SP1, -pre20, and now during installation of xennet it
BSOD 0x7E (0xC0000005, 0xF635BDF7, 0xF78EA3EC, 0xF78EA0E8)
