what would be the shortest and fastest way to clone a e.g. basic Centos 
5 guest for further use? For example I'd like to set up a master 
Mysql-server as a guest an than "clone" two additional slaves.

Which xen configfiles may be edited? Can the config and the filesystem 
simply be copied?

Thanks for suggestions!
