I forgot to mention.... 


if you are interested you can safely run vmware on an openvz kernel. 

Openvz is more like solaris zones/containers. 


Cheers.

Guys, 

you can't do this. 


If you try and run vmware on a Xen kernel you will panic/crash the box as soon as you try to startup a vmware vm. 


Both Xen and vmware run in ring 0.

Not without patching a lot of stuff. When someone asked this a while 
back.. there was a lot of conflicting code and when they got past that 
it just crashed. To put it another way, both are ball games that look 
alike: Cricket, American Baseball.. beyond throwing a ball, hitting, 
catching, and running they are not the same.
