I have two main partitions on the computer: root and home. Home changes the 
size of free space a lot more often and is much more likely to run out of 
space. So, I have a few questions on different options:

1. If I install Xen on "root" partition, is that a security risk?
2. Can I create a new partition with part of "root" and part of "home"?
3. How much room does Xen require? And does it have problems running on certain 
types of partitions?
