Trying to get a handle on the 'not included' aspects of Xen4CentOS.

Anyone care to share their experiences with xm vs virtinstall vs virt-manage.  Currently I'm running one xm create config to launch a CentOS cd based kickstart install, then I use a second xm create config to run the created systems.

Thoughts on pvgrub and running unmodified kernels from within the pv guest.  Is there a set of modifications that need to be run in the guest system to work reliably?

Best practices for using encrypted lv's vs img files.  Clone vs backup, performance issues etc.
