Summary

In this chapter we took our first steps with Xen and learned two different ways to get Xen installed and running on our system:

  • We installed Xen using the pre-built binary packages provided by Red Hat for the Fedora Core 6 distribution.
  • We checked out the pre-release version of Xen from the Mercury Revision Control Repository, and compiled and installed Xen from scratch.

In the next chapter, we will create virtual machines or domUs that will run different operating systems, inside our base Fedora Core 6 system.
