Troll? I have been on this list for over four years. I have posted under 
Feizhou and one or two other addresses as I moved jobs.

So I only messed with XEN in the last few months. FYI, I am using it for 
DESKTOPS. Not servers. This is not a matter of preferring Ubuntu. It is 
one of NO CHOICE. I know next to nothing about Debian/Ubuntu 
configuration files nor am I familiar with dpkg or apt as I am with rpm 
and yum. You think I want to move over for fun?

Let us see you try getting accelerated 3D/video support for X and Xen 
working together and then add a multi-seat configuration on top of that.

Sorry you don't like my complaining that I cannot do this or that on 
RHEL5 for desktop purposes but I have a school to support here, not a 
cluster of mail/web/storage/file servers. Troll he calls me.
