Hi Rodrigo,

have you tried Xen? I have only read one article about it. Is it stable
as to be useable? Under which kernel? I heard that the kernel has to be
patched for it?

I am currently back to the stone age with my smoke signal modem, so I don't
hear too many things...Ah the good old days in Uni with apt-get updates of
3MB/s :)
