Re: [Xen-devel] Storage for library of domains

I'm interested in setting up a xen system where the user can request a
"vanilla" version of linux from a "library" of versions.  The user
will be able to do what they want with their system but subsequent
users requesting the same version, will also get the vanilla version,
not one that had the changes from the last user.

Maybe setup LVM with snapshots (at least I think that's the name). One LV will be "vanilla" and other stoarge "partitions" will contain only changes.
You could expect some stability problems - this technology is new in 2.6.9.
