Fair enough, I know how to copy files from one computer to the other.
Which files do I need to copy though? If I copy the config file from
/etc/xen, and the disk image file, is that enough? Do I need
/var/lib/xen/boot_kernel.XXXXX and /var/lib/xen/boot_ramdisk.XXXXX.

If I copy these three into place, is that it?
