...just in addition.

I'm sorry for the religious NetBSD users, but we run several HP proliant 
machines with a XEN Gentoo Linux Dom0 (Xen kernel sources adopted from Layman 
/ openSuSe and/or Jeremy's Xen sources). 

NetBSD Dom0 on bare metal doesn't fit our needs because we can't get any 
special HP hardware running (i.e. smart array controls, iLo/IPMI access and 
more) under NetBSD Dom0.

For us on typical NOC IP servers the couple:

 - Gentoo Linux Dom0 (Gentoo should be easily to find in for typical *BSD 
users as it adopt's many of *BSD typical habits) with 

 - NetBSD DomU's on top  (plus a few further Gentoo DomUs for Linux users)

are our main choice with excellent experiences. This gives us the most out of 
the HP hardware facilities, a current Xen incl. performance and NetBSD comfort 
/ quality.

But i'm still interested in peoples which are running NetBSD Dom0 in 
production on HP proliants with a full working set of the HP management and 
monitoring features etc.
