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.
