Ahm, yes, sorry, that is why I wanted to try to run it fully virtualized. I 
made a typo and skipped the "not" in "this probably would run 
paravirtualized". Yes, I'm sure it won't run paravirtualized.

AFAIK Xen can also install and run fully virtualized guests. The problem is 
that install location. (maybe there are others, but this at least is the 
one I'm facing now).

Qemu: I haven't ever used it. Would you recommend using it in this case? 
Can I run that side-by-side with Xen? Are the rpms part of CentOS?
