But my idea is first to implement xen on server, so, accessing remotely is not
really a problem for installation & maintenance. But in a second time i would
like to replace some user's computer they have two computer, one
windows,one linux
fedora, with screen switcher. Idea was to merge the both in one
computer with xen but
if they cannot access their own 2 console its useless for this usage.
Maybe xen is
not the right product.

Thanks a lot.
