Re: new system configuration advice wanted

I am using various gplpv versions, all un-signed on Windows XP, Win 7, Win 
Server 2003 and Windows 8 dom-u's with excellent results.  Have had to install 
twice in some cases, if the new devices do not appear properly in the 
hardware/devices list.  This is on Netbsd 5.1 dom0/Xen 3.3  and debian 6 dom0 
/xen 4.  Disk images move perfectly between the two platforms. Am using both 
file-backed and iscsi-backed. Have not yet made the jump to netbsd 6, but am 
looking forward to.

I've used the GPL PV network driver in a Win 2008r2 guest on a NetBSD dom0.
Not the PV disk driver.  I've used the PV disk driver in a 2008r2 on
a linux dom0 with decent luck, but I did install the system with the
emulated driver, then use the signed gplpv installer for 2008 that swaps
the new driver into place.  I haven't tried supplying the PV drivers
directly at install time.
