    ill try to explain what if do with my poor english.
    I allways install ubuntu server and vmware server, and then, the real server (other ubuntu server or windows, thats depends on every client).
    When all its installed and working, u take a copy of the entire system. Periodically, i take copies of the entire systems.

    If i need a bigger server, i install userver on the new server, and i just have to copy the vm... and thats all, the new server is working.

    If my server crashes, i get another computer and put the virtual machine on it, it quick and simple.

    I hope i have help you

    Thanks for your post but not sure if i understand fully.

    to make it simple
    is there a way to put Hardy on etch?
    also mimimal with X?(iI expect since xen is transparent X will be needed on dom0 also)

    falko thanks for your post.

    I think i will stick with lenny .

    i was thinking of running gdm on domU lenny leaving dom0 clean x free and simple. then in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf do this;


    Then : /etc/init.d/gdm restart

    finally on dom0 run X :0 -query ipofdomU?

    what do you think / any suggestions?
