With Linux dom0 I'd prefer to use RHEL/Centos5 and install Xen
packages from http://www.gitco.de/repo/. That combination gives
up-to-date Xen (3.4.1) as well as Redhat's well-maintained kernel-xen
(which also contains backported drivers).
Note that with this setup some newer features (like scsi passthru)
will not work due to lack of support in Redhat's kernel-xen, but it
should be suitable for common purposes.

Thx. I have installed 3.4.1 and it apears to work fine, with one minor issue. When I boot to dom0 my display goes crazy and shows lots of random symbols and colors. Still i can SSH to the server so it's not a real problem.

One more question - should i set dom0_mem to some value (eg 512mb) or just let dom0 manage memory for itself?
