My english is not very well, but I will try:
Lenny with limited Xen support
Lenny will have limited Xen support because the vanilla-kernel has only
32-bits domU (guest) support with PAE, and no dom0 (host) support. The
dom0 in Etch does not support PAE.
Pasi Kärkkäinen explained the situation  and Bastian Blank wrote an
article  about the options we have. His conclusion is to support an
2.6.18 kernel in Lenny, until Lenny+1/2 adds better Xen support.
Realize that the article of Bastian gives only options, the conclusion
is his conclusion. Will this confuse people?
