Perhaps a bit smaller, and perhaps just as useful ...
I hear that a AMD64/64-bit Xen 3.1 hypervisor can now run 32-bit
(but only PAE-enabled ones AIUI) domUs. So, while I don't have
hardware that can make use of PAE, I can see how some VPS providers
would be more willing to consider NetBSD domUs if they could run
them on their current platform (be it IA-32+PAE or AMD64).
And really, I don't need a 64-bit domU, at least not yet.
But, now that I think about it, having a NetBSD/amd64+xen dom0
for development of this might be handy too. Whatever, it's all
