I don't know about using Xen. I wanted to go that route but my
processor does not support VT-x. I use VirtualBox and it works
quite well. In their tutorial they have instructions for building
a VMDK file that points to the partition. It may be more automated
now but it was pretty manual when I did it. A couple of notices:
Interesting, I have never heard of VirtualBox. What made you chose
that over vmware? How do you like the performance?
Thanks for the tips.
Type faster. Use Dvorak:
A while ago there was a virtualization discussion going on here and
several products were listed, one of which was VirtualBox. I have both
VMWare and VirtualBox working, the former with a 6GB file and VirtualBox
pointing to my XP partition. VirtualBox is still very full featured but
not quite a tweakble as VMWare but seems to run a little faster. They're
both good products.
Even though they are both "free" I don't like having to mess with a
serial # for VMWare, also the setup for VirtualBox is simpler, although
both require you to compile a kernel module. (At least for Fedora, you
can probably get prebuilt modules for RHEL/CentOS).
