Well, I am running Debian Lenny in virtual machines under z/VM 5.4.0,
without difficulty, and I know of no reason why it wouldn't work
in z/VM 6.1.0.  I am stuck with z/VM 5.4.0 and can't move forward
because z/VM 6.1.0 requires a z10 processor or better, and I'm running
on a z/890 (2086).

What kind of "workarounds" do you need?  Have you even tried to install yet?
